So here is another great idea for imaginative play! A toy car wash!!
Such a simple idea but the kids loved the idea of washing their toy cars, trains, etc. All you need is a bucket or a big tray to hold the soapy water, brushes, sponges, toothbrushes, rags and a water hose to clean the toys off. So gather up all your toys – oh and make sure you are not using toys that have batteries in them! (we did accidentally dunk one of them in the water, it’s since dried out and I think it’s fine!!)
Have the kids wash the cars, scrubbing them and then let them hose it down. Mr. O loves when we go to the car wash so making our own car wash was such a hit!
The kids played for a good hour washing the toy cars and then they moved onto washing their outside bikes and toys!
While the kids played, Mommy got to enjoy her coffee 😉 ahhh the small things in life are the best!
So what kinds of imaginative play do you do with your kids? What other ideas have you all come up with?
