Car wash

Car wash

Children love being outdoors, running around and finding ways to play with water. Washing the car is a great way to get children involved in an activity while enjoying natural play with water.

What you need:

  • Sponges
  • Soapy water
  • Buckets
  • Cloths

Number of players:


Using buckets, soapy water and cloths, give your car a good wash. 

To rinse the car, turn on a hose and give it a good spray with the water at high pressure.

Bikes, scooters and outdoor toys can be washed too.


  • Kids love to get involved in activities that 'help' mum and dad – and washing the car is the perfect job for them!
  • If you have more than one child washing the car, fill up a bucket for each child and give each their own cloths for cleaning – this will avoid arguments later.
  • Playing with water is a fun activity that can lead to all sorts of imaginative activities – the run-off can be turned into a dam in the gutter, or the suds in the bucket can be used to 'write' on the car while it's being cleaned, the hose can make patterns on the dry pavement.
