Summary:


Many adults dread laundry day, but my young kids love it! While it’s another task that we struggle to find time to complete, young kids delight in the opportunity to load clothes into the washing machine, move those washed clothes to the dryer, and push the buttons to start the washer and dryer (my kids’ favorite). Even more, they love playing with cardboard boxes, so I turned two big boxes into a laundry day pretend play activity.

It is one of those centers that is so fun and complex that the kids play with it for almost an hour and a half.

How great is that?!

No matter how fun tech is, imagination reigns supreme when given the opportunity, so this week I wanted to share this fun VET PRETEND PLAY PRINTABLE that you can use to spark the fun around your home.
