GOSH Play team says:

“This activity can support children with communication and language development. It can also help them to problem-solve safely, promoting healthy social and emotional development. Role playing together is key, as this encourages their imagination, while teaching them the importance of good hygiene and social skills.”

A perfect children’s activity to do at home, you can combine a handwashing station with a washing station for toys too.

What to do

  • Create a washing station for toys in your kitchen sink or using a washing up bowl.
  • Encourage your child to clean their dolls and toys.
  • It’s always nice to help with the cleaning and they’ll have lots of fun playing with the bubbles.
