After a little folding 101 with Elizabeth, William is now well on his way to King of the Towels!
He was very proud of his stack of towels :)
Amanda also worked with William on pants, shorts, and socks which now he folds like a pro. I guess shirts will be next. Now I officially have 8 children who can fold laundry. Folding time seems to always be a down time, and a time for some good old chit chat with the children.
If you are wondering at what age one starts to be a laundry helper, it's around 2 years old. Wesley is now doing one of William's jobs, Wesley pushes the baskets of folded clothes to the rooms in which they go. This may seem like a small task, yet it's a great help to me. It is also a start in teaching Wesley about chores, and character traits....even if he doesn't understand right now.
I love that our daily life has so many teachable moments. We may start with the simple task of teaching a small child to fold laundry, truly it's so much more. It can also be having a servants heart, and being a good steward with your belongings.
