This is a super easy project that generates lots of interest and can be adapted to suit your themes at school. I’l set it up for the children with traditional felt clothes or make my own items to suit what we are discussing.

Items we used: wood off cuts; screws; thin rope

The pictures are pretty self explanatory. We made a basic frame and then 2 sides with holes for the rope. Some sanding and varnishing if need be will finish it off. I’ve found that not only do the children concentrate on “hanging” up the washing which is great for fine motor, but they will also sort, discuss and order their items with each other and themselves. (The pics below were adapted for a valentine theme with pink and red feathers and hearts). I’ve also included a miniature “clothes” templates below to print and cut from paper or felt.
