Washing Baby Dolls

Margaret loooooves playing in water. She also loves taking care of her babies. So I went online and purchased the cheapest water-safe baby I could find (not a fan of the cartoony-type dolls like this, but it was $10 cheaper than the more realistic ones) and let Baby play in the mud while Margaret napped.

Then I filled a dish pan with water, offered a washcloth, and Meg got to work.

She took her job very seriously, making sure every inch of that baby was mud-free.

Once she was all clean, it was time for snuggles...

Then back into the dirt patch again.

"Eew, dirty!"

Baby also got to try out a few of Meg's toys.

My 3 year old would love to do this! She has a couple dolls she brings to the tub with her but this looks like much more fun!! thanks for the inspiration!

It really is such a fun activity for this age. My daughter couldn't believe I was intentionally muddying her toys!

Hope your daughter enjoys it just as much!

Love this, bathing the dolls in the water tray is always a popular activity with my class but have never thought of getting the baby dirty in the mud first! Thanks so much for adding this to outdoor play linkup.
