Day 238: Laundry Measurements & Directions

Read out loud the directions on the laundry detergent package. Explain what the directions mean. Show your children how you measure the proper amount to use. Show them how to put the detergent into the machine properly.

I had a little stepping stool that my sons could step onto so that they could see inside the washing machine. They watched as I measured the detergent and put it in the machine. I closed the lid and instructed them on which buttons to select for the type of laundry we were washing. We selected hot or cold water, and the length of time the clothes would take to wash. Then they got to push the start button. Fun! Your children may ask lots of questions – answer them!
