Sort the Laundry
This is a great activity that will give your child some household responsibility and teach a very practical skill at the same time.
- Show your child how to sort the laundry before you wash it.
- Even a very young child can separate whites, colors, and darks, and it will save you time as well!
- You can also have your child remove the clothes from the dryer, and sort and carry them to the appropriate rooms when folded.
- Folding may be a little tricky depending on your standards, but you can let her tackle the easy things: towels, dishcloths, baby blankets, and so on.
