Make a Play Washing Machine

Do you have any little helpers around your house?  Since her five-year-old son loves to help out with the laundry, Craftster user crafty-in-tally decided to turn a box left over from a recent move into a kid-sized washing machine!  Not only is this project great for imaginative play, it can also serve as a laundry hamper.  With a few modifications, you could even use a second box to create a matching dryer!  [how to make a play washing machine]
