a little laundry
My little ones have been doing some laundry around here. I decided to dedicate some of my low kitchen cupboards to montessori-like "stations" and it has been a smashing success so far. The favorite is definitely window washing - I put within a little container a cloth, squeegee, and sprayer bottle with water and a little vinegar (my 6 year old actually does a pretty good job! I think Sunday afternoon he washed the sliding glass door about 8 times). So between that, doll-clothes washing (laundry basket, bucket, small drying rack & clothespins), I also have a little vegetable washing station that consists of a tray with a bowl, brush, and apple slicer; a small tray with two glass jars with some rice (for pouring back and forth), and an art stencil tray. As we often like to say around here in Sugar City, the possibilities are endless!
