It has been a busy few weeks. We are getting ready to put our house on the market. There is so much to do & seems like not enough time to do it in. This week we started to get our house packed & tried to fix up some areas that need work. Today’s project was going to be for me to tackle our landscaping. I had a lot of weeding & pruning to do. I thought Mai could help me do some gardening. She did, but got bored with it quicker than I needed to complete my project.
She wanted me to push her to the park in her push car. She pushed it over to me & said “C’mon Mama, Let’s go!” Before I had a chance to protest & tell her that we would go in a little bit, I noticed how filthy her car was. I remembered a brilliant idea from my friend over at P Is For Preschooler. I asked my little girl if she wanted to have a car wash to clean up all her dirty cars. She shouting yes & ran immediately for the hose.
We filled up her kiddie pool with water & bubble bath. She was very excited to see all of the bubbles. I brought out all her bikes & push cars. I thought this would be a great opportunity to clean up all of her trucks & other outside toys that have gotten pretty dirty, so I brought those over too. I gave her a sponge & let her go.
“Don’t worry Miss Mama, I will clean your cars really nice for you. I am a really good car washer.”
She scrubbed all of her little cars & trucks first & then put them in the sun to let them dry.
Next she moved on to her bigger car. “Ewwwww, this car is disgusting.” She sponged it down.
Then rinsed it off with the hose.
She did such a great job that she had two more customers waiting to be washed.
This kept her busy for a long time & I was able to get my gardening finished.
Thank you as always for stopping by. Please follow us on Facebook as well.

Thank you, Janine. I hope that you are having a great weekend too. Enjoy.
Great idea! YOu had time to finish and she had a great time! Pinned.
It was great. She was so happy. I had fun watching her while I worked.
We did this with out daughter not so long ago, she had a big line of all her cars and trucks and washed them all too. My partner and I were then able to get the gardening done too 🙂
It was awesome. This will be my new yard work go to.
I don’t blame you 🙂
