Activity: Simply washing up can be so much fun when turned into an activity
How long: Up to 30 minutes
What you’ll need: A sink, lots of dirty pots and pans, fairy liquid for lovely bubbles! A cloth or sponge for washing and a step or chair depending on the height of your child.
Directions: Let your child use their own washing up gloves, pop on an apron and get them to stand on a step or chair if they can’t reach. Ask your child to arrange all the pots and pans so they wash all the bowls together for example. Place washed items on a rack and leave to dry.
