Do your kids like helping you out with folding the laundry, sorting silverware into the right spot or using the duster to dust all the surfaces?
As soon as I begin doing one or the other, my kids run up to help. Of course it’s not always perfect and the way I would do it but what counts is their effort and willingness! So today I’m sharing an easy and fun Hanging Clothes on a Clothesline Activity.

Hang the clothesline. I simply found a random corner in the house where I could use the furniture to secure the clothesline. Pre-hang the clothespins right onto the clothesline. Bring out a basket/pile of your child’s clothes (socks, shorts, undies, t-shirts) and have your child hang them up!
This activity worked perfectly with Alina (4), and she wasn’t done until she finished hanging all the clothes from the pile 🙂 What a dedicated helper!
Viktor (2) had fun with this activity too, not playing by the rules. It may be a little more difficult for younger children to open the clothespins, but with adults help younger children can enjoy this activity too.
What is my child learning?
-Fine motor skills (opening the clothespins to hang the clothing)
-Chores/housework, instilling habits
Have fun teaching your kids about housework and daily chores, it can be super fun!
