Washing Doll Clothes: An Easy Summer Activity


This time of year, getting kids in water is always a great idea, whether it’s the water of a swimming pool or bath, their feet in a creek or their hands in a tub. Washing doll clothes is a fun and easy activity for summer that gets kids into water.

One of the ideas in my summer activity pot was washing doll clothes, and we finally got a morning without rain in which we were able to do it.

Had I been thinking ahead better, I would have had some supplies together for it, but it wasn’t a big deal.

What You’ll Need Washing doll clothes is a fun and easy activity for summer that gets kids into water.

  • a tub or two for washing clothes
  • soap (we used wool wash because I had it handy)
  • doll clothes (the girl gathered some in a basket while I got the other supplies)
  • clothes pins or hangers (regular clothespins are fine for older kids, or I found some jumbo plastic ones at the dollar store that would be easier for little hands)
  • clothesline
  • a place outside to work

How to Wash Doll Clothes  Washing doll clothes is a fun and easy activity for summer that gets kids into water.

Put soap and water in one tub and plain water in the other and set up outside. We used a table for washing.

Tie the clothesline somewhere easy for your child to reach. We used the sides of the deck.

Wash and rinse clothes and hang them up. Washing doll clothes is a fun and easy activity for summer that gets kids into water.

This is a super simple activity but kids find it oddly fun. It kept her occupied long enough for me to mostly clean up from our Memorial Day gathering, and I would have had even more time if I hadn’t had to go hunting for clothes pins.

Does your child like simple chores as a game? If you’ve never tried it, you might be surprised at what your kid gets excited about. And now we have clean doll clothes, which is good, too.
