Pretend Play – Our DIY Cardboard Washing Machine

I don’t know about you, but my children and I loves pretend play. For me it’s where the imagination runs freely. If you remember we also made a castle out of cardboard. 

This time since it’s washing day  I’d finished a box of Tide powder.When I was about to throw it, I thought why don’t I make a mini washing machine that we can play with. 

I’ve been keeping my eye out for inexpensive do-it-yourself ways to have a little fun indoors. 

Today,presenting our  fun and budget-friendly DIY cardboard washing machine that are sure to keep your little ones entertained.

 
I used aluminum foil tape to cover the box then added the cap of downy for the knob. I printed Samsung logo and other features of washing machine to make it more realistic. I also cut out some paper clothes to hang on the clothesline.

 
 
I’ve always been amazed at how much fun my kids can have with a cardboard box. Such a clever idea!

Are you ready for excitement @ Yas Waterworld, Abu Dhabi

It’s been the talk of the town since it opened in January. And now that we have something to celebrate I suggested to Raquiza that instead of fine dining why don’t we just celebrate her birthday and spend the day in the Yas Waterworld.
When she agreed to the idea, we booked our Friday with a fun-filled adventure..

Situated in Yas Island Abu Dhabi and themed around the tale of Dana, a well known character from The legend of the Lost Pearl, one of the Arabian folklore. Yas Waterworld is one of Abu Dhabi’s foremost tourist locations.
