Welcome to the car wash!

We are really enjoying the sunny weather – the boys love to play outside! So I set up a simple car wash for them – a car ramp, some plastic cars, some bowls of water, a baby brush and a tub of very soapy bubbles. And the rules – complete freedom to do whatever they liked!

My preschooler experimented with how fast he could make the cars go down the ramp by pouring water behind them. He also loved scrubbing the toys (doubles up as toy cleaning – win win!). He even asked for more toys to clean – and who am I to say no?!

My toddler also thought this was brilliant, so much so that he wanted to get into the tub with the cars! Oh well…it was hot!

We love our ‘really useful box’ – here is a link to it. Please note that this is an affiliate link, which means that if you purchase the box here I get a small commission at no cost to you.


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
