Big Heart World's Loads of Summer Love Activities

Mindful Laundry

Load it in, and breathe it out!  Countdown from 10! Slowly breathe in and out on each number of the countdown. 

Why: This helps children to calm their bodies and minds!

Laundry Moves

Make up a fun laundry dance together with 3 or 4 unique moves (clapping, jumping, stomping, wiggling, etc.).

Why: Learning to collaborate helps kids build strong relationships, and dancing builds big muscles!

Helper Handshake

Practice the laundry handshake! Make up a secret helper handshake with your little laundry helper. Use it when you do laundry and help each other. 

Why: Kids feel great when you recognize how much they’ve helped, and it makes them want to help even more!

Feelings Charades

Play feelings charades! Take turns making facial expressions for different feelings or using a sock on your hand as a puppet. Try to guess the feeling! 

Why: Learning to name feelings allows children to talk about and manage their emotions.

Laundry Selfies

Take smiley selfies as you do the laundry and send them to people you love to make them smile.

Why: Doing kind things for others helps kids build empathy.
