One of my favourite things to do for the girls is to create a new little play space for them. I am always rearranging furniture and switching toys in and out of play. Last week, we were inside almost the whole week, with the unseasonal rain and lack of sunshine, so I made a little Laundry corner for them and it was a huge hit!
A simple string washing line with pegs,
Wooden ironing board and iron;
A few little baskets for sorting,
and lots of dolls clothes...
of various sizes and seasons...
Hanging everything up...
This was definitely a favourite activity;
They sorted the booties and bibs;
...and got to experience the frustrations of trying to find a matching pair!
Then came the ironing;
We bought the girls these wooden irons from a Mens Shed market stall last year...
They love them (because of course, they aren't allowed to touch mine).
I think this is pretty funny, because the real laundry didn't get used at all last week! It is definitely not something I love or even remotely like to do. And seeing me iron anything is a pretty rare occurrence too. In all honesty, I can easily ignore housework in favour of other more pressing needs, such as sewing or making a big crafty mess with the girls.
