Sort the Laundry

Materials

  • Laundry

Directions

This is a great activity that will give your child some household responsibility and teach a very practical skill at the same time.

  1. Show your child how to sort the laundry before you wash it.
  2. Even a very young child can separate whites, colors, and darks, and it will save you time as well!
  3. You can also have your child remove the clothes from the dryer, and sort and carry them to the appropriate rooms when folded.
  4. 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.
