Make Your Own Washing Machine

A few weeks ago the classrooms were filled with giggles as the toddlers in Our Time wiggled and giggled, pretending to be clothes in a washing machine.  It’s always been one of my favorite chants.  We’ll here’s a fun activity to help you make your own “Washing Machine Bottle” to share at home.  Here’s what you need:

  • A empty (and clean) plastic 2-liter bottle
  • A few small scraps of fabric
  • Water
  • Dishwashing Liquid

Fill your bottle with the fabric scraps.  Then fill the bottle half-way full with water.  Add a few drops of dishwashing liquid.  Be forewarned, it will not take much.  Put the lid on nice and tight.  Now, have fun as you shake the bottle up and down or side-to-side and watch the “clothes” and bubbles swirl around!
