Sponge Play

Fill a bucket with water outside. Dip a sponge into it and encourage your child to find places outside of your house that can be washed with a sponge. Have them scrub the mailbox, the garage door, the fence, the patio furniture, the side of the house, and the playset. They will have so much fun watching items go from dirty to clean!
