Wash the Floor

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

This early childhood activity teaches your toddler responsibility by having him shadow his parent's actions.


  • Apple
  • Sponge


  1. Give your child a wet sponge and let her help you when you're washing the floor.
  2. Once you know she will not automatically dump it, give her an inch or two of water in a small bucket or bowl.
  3. She will have fun being your helper, and cleanup is easy!
