Do your kids have a washboard? Do they use it/like it? Do you use it for washing also? Maybe not for everyday... but for prewashing?

most important... which one/where did you buy ?

We bought a kid's sized washboard from Nova and the kid's used to play with it daily. I also got a huge wash bowl from Nova, and I strung a clothes line across the kitchen at their eye level. They'd wash their dolls clothing and stuff like that, and then hang them on the line to dry. It was a bit messy, but we had wood floors and I'd just lay some towels under the dripping clothing. They'd play "washing" forever and I could get stuff done. Honestly I think we could have done without the washboard and just had them hand washing stuff in the huge bowl and they'd have had just as much fun.

I have been loving the time DS and I spend together washing laundry! Its so peacefully rhythmic. I wash our cloth diapers by hand and DS usually washed his play silks, and doll clothes. He really enjoys the work of it. I bought both our washboards from http://www.acehardware.com/product/i...Id=48564766694 mine is the "maid rite" size and DS has the "dubl handi", its perfect for him.
