Toy Car Wash

No need to buy expensive toys, make for your kiddo this awesome car wash!
Kids have a huge weakness for all toys, which help them imitate adults. There’s nothing surprising in this. Parents are the first and the best examples to follow. When I was young I wanted to have my little stall, cause my parents had a little shop at the time. I wanted to be the saleswoman as my mum was. So they made a little cardboard shop for me. I was delighted, despite the fact that my shop’s construction was very simple.

Louise from Paging Fun Mums wrote an awesome post about handmade car wash. It’s a great idea, with real foam and sponge elements. If your kiddo likes playing with water and foam, this idea is perfect for an afternoon activity. This car wash is very similar to the real one; it can be used to wash a car, but toy ones. For older children, Tricycle Car Wash would be better, check it out.
