Here is another wonderful idea from The Toddler Busy Book. My girls have those ride-on toy cars that play irritating music until they get left outside in a downpour. It really was an accident, but I'm not complaining.

Anyway, The Toddler Busy Book suggested having a mini car wash. I sent the girls onto the deck with a bucket of soapy water and a couple of rags. They spent a couple hours detailing their toy cars and not fighting with each other. Priceless!

Their toys get clean, they get clean. It's a win-win situation!

Wow. I wonder if that would work with my kids ... I've tried having them wash their toy house, but they got bored in no time. Cute dress on Cakes, by the way! Must have come from a very fashionable family. :)
