Washing Dishes Water Play for Kids

 If you follow my blog you know we love water play.  It is one activity that both my boys can enjoy together.  I am always trying to find something fun for them to do together.  My oldest son has washed his cars outside before and always wants to get in my sink to wash the dishes.  So I thought I would put the 2 ideas together and let them wash dishes outside this day.  Both boys loved grabbing toy dishes for the bucket to go outside to play with in the water table.  Once we got the activity set up they could not get enough dishes to wash.  Hope when they are older they still love washing dishes this much to help me out in the house.

We added a bucket of “clean water” to rinse the dishes at my son’s request.
 
This is a great sensory play activity.  A great way to introduce young kids to life lessons.  It promotes sharing and team work.  It lets them use problem solving skills to figure out how to wash the dishes too.

Water play is always so much fun no matter how simple it is at my house.  I do hope you and your family may have some water fun too.
