How it Plays
On the next sunny day you decide to wash the family car, fill a bucket with warm, soapy water and grab a sponge for yourself and another for your child. As you're scrubbing your vehicle, have her wash hers (a toy car or truck, Big Wheel or bike). After you hose off your car, pass the hose to your child so she can do the same. Then hand her a small towel so she can buff her car until it shines. Share her pride in her accomplishment.
