April 18 is Laundry Day! Stars0 reviews (Do you like this day? Rate it!)

Laundry Day On this day in 1934, the first Laundromat opened in Fort Worth Texas.

Laundry day may not sound so exciting to you, but it can be fun for a child. Really! And, you can start training your little ones to help you! Laundry can teach them early math skills, such as sorting and matching, and helping gives them a sense of responsibility and makes them feel good about themselves. When the work is done, see what fun they can create with an empty wash basket - tie a strap to it and give them a ride (or they can give their stuffed animals a ride), fill it with balls, let them hide under it pretending to be a turtle, etc.
