Laundry Detective

Toddler Laundry

As you sort laundry, ask your child to guess who it belongs to. You can hold up a shirt, “Who wears this” Let them respond and then they can pick the next piece of clothing and you guess. If they don’t know, you can tell them and share how you know this.

When your child guesses who the clothing belongs to, they’re playing detective. They’re focusing, paying attention to clues, and using their working memory and problem-solving skills. These skills are important for learning new things.
