A Car Wash for the Kids

The final few days of summer are here along with 90 degree temps. What better way to cool down and celebrate these last few days than with every kid's favorite thing: water! Monday morning, I created a "car wash" in the water table. The kids had a blast scrubbing the toy cars and splashing in the bubbly water.

Here's what you'll need:

I did our car wash in the water table, but I've also made this an indoor activity and filled medium sized Sterilite plastic bins with water (or baking pans work great too) and soap. If you're doing this outside, I recommend doing it on a warm day so the kids dry off quickly or put them in swim gear. The kids spent a nice, long time splashing in the bubbles and cleaning all of the cars with the bubbles and brushes. Any activity that gives the kids a 1+ hours of entertainment is a keeper in my book!
