Today I was scrolling through fb and came a cross a great play idea for my son. The Imagination Tree is a blog that tons of great ideas and she shares great stuff on her fb page also (When I saw she had baby dolls for her kids to wash, I thought this would be great for big brother. He loves washing his trucks all kinds of ways. We had never done a bucket of water with bubbles in it! He noticed me scanning fb from my cell and saw the tub of water with the babies and said I want to do that. I said how about cars in it? And he was all for that. I got all the stuff together I thought we could use and we set it up. He had lots of fun playing with the water,bubbles, sponge, and cars. Anytime outside is a plus for him!
Toy car wash fun- water play for kids
What we used:
a bucket, a large bowl, a sponge, bubbles, water, and a towel.
What we did:
put bubbles and water in bucket then added cars. Put plain water in large bowl-so he could rinse them off. He had a sponge to clean them with and a towel he could dry them with if he wanted. I don’t think he used the towel.
He probably would have played here for some time but we had to run out and do a few things so we had to clean up a little too early for him. Hope to let him play another day for a little bit longer. He did get a good 30 -45 min out there with his truck and cars though.
Hope you can wash something at your house your kids will enjoy!
