Anyone out there intolerant to soy products???
I have finally found the ultimate distraction for my daughter while I hang out the washing! For the last few days she has been washing her bikes with soapy water then hosing them down. It’s bad enough hanging out baskets full of washing by your self, but with a toddler who runs away in the mix, it takes three times as long so the “bike washing” has become an absolute godsend! It is also a great trick for when you want to wash the car, your toddler can wash their bike at the same time!
This toddler trick is perfect for those toddlers that can walk/stand on their own.
What you need:
- - Bike/s
- - A small bowl/bucket of soapy water. (Car or dishwashing liquid is fine)
- - Old sponge or cloth.
- - Hose, if it’s handy!
How to play:
1. Set your toddler up in a safe area with their sponge and soapy water. Explain to them that they need to wash all the dirt off the bike by washing all the surfaces! Demonstrate the washing action on the bike with the sponge.
2. Once your toddler has washed their bike either get the hose or a bucket of plain water to pour over the bike to rinse all the soap off! If using a hose, be sure to stand with them as a hose on the loose is not a good thing, especially if it’s close to the washing line! =)Tweet
