At The Car Wash

With the Summer holidays here I think most of you will be in agreement that we want to spend as much time outdoors as possible but of course sometimes the cost of going out can be too much and the free alternatives can become boring when done too often like going to the park or geocaching perhaps.

So how do you get the kids outside?

Well one way we found was getting the girls to help daddy clean the car. This is good in more ways than one.


1. The kids are spending time outside in the fresh air. Ok they may get a teeny tiny bit wet but if it is a hot day they'll soon dry out.


2. They are getting to have time with daddy, which is never often enough in their opinion and with four girls my lovely husband doesn't want to be stuck playing with Barbies all of the time.


3. This gets them being helpful and learning about team work whilst doing it, ie sharing the sponges and the water, working together to get the car cleaned together.


4. Daddy promises them ice creams once they've completed the job, well that's a big plus right there!!


What ideas do you have for getting your kids outdoors in the Summer months??

  2. The girls have done a wonderful job there helping their dad. Car washing is a great chance for some daddy daughter bonding. Something must go wrong when my kids do this as they always come home soaked from head to foot With the car looking dirtier than when it started, perhaps that's just having boys?
