Working at the Car Wash

Car Wash - Dramatic Play

Items needed:

Riding toys

water squirt bottles & buckets

bath bubbles

various cleaning tools - brush, scrubbies, sponges, towels

Fill containers with water and a drop of bubbles and the children

will be on their way to cleaning not only their cars, but everything

else in sight!  Children will work their fingers and hands pushing

out the water and scrubbing the cars.  As fine and gross motor

skills are developing, language skills are also enhanced as you

expand this activity with print such as, car wash signs.  This

activity can be further expanded through the use of baby dolls,

registers with play money and dramatic play clothing, encouraging

development of cognitive thinking skills.
