Laundry in the Fast Lane

Laundry Games (1)

It’s getting harder to keep Veronika entertained while I do laundry, so today I upped the ante; instead of seating her next to me with her own laundry center, I put her right in the laundry basket!

She instantly was intrigued with her new surroundings. To keep her occupied, I dropped in easy, small items – baby socks, washcloths – and soon she was playing happily with them.

Next I played a game of peekaboo, draping a small hand towel over her head and asking, “where’s Veronika?”

I lifted the towel for a big reveal: there she is! She loved this one.

Now it was time to turn the laundry basket into a car.

I zoomed her around, including back and forth to the dryer to check on a load, and announced “Pit stop!” when we came to a stop. These words got a giggle every time.

One note of caution: big siblings are going to think this looks so fun that they’ll want a turn! Needless to say, this is one way to take the drudgery out of laundry.
