Six people. 7 days in a week. If everyone wears one outfit a day, sleeps in a different pajama set, and uses a towel… That’s more than 200 pieces of laundry each week… not including undies and those dreaded socks!
I’ve got better things to do than sort all that laundry by color but tossing everything into the machine together means running colors and other headaches. So, I taught my children to sort their own laundry with these printable cards.
We have a three-bin laundry sorter and a basket. I printed descriptive cards – which detail the types of clothing and colors to place in each container – laminated them, punched a hole, and attached them to the sorter. We had a practice session with the children and then turned it over to their little but very capable hands.
Wonder of wonders. It works.
