I set this up for my daughter and she loved it. Not really a life skill anymore but it was fun for her. We did this after reading the book, Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash. We tied a jump rope between two chairs, got our our bucket of clothespins (found at the Dollar Store or Walmart), and old socks. After hanging up the socks, she tried hanging up her stuffed animals. Fun and a great boredom buster that challenges those fine writing muscles!
