Tshirt/Tops folder using cereal box

Hi All,

Howz summer vacation coming along? Ours is kind of very busy between camp drop offs/pick ups, cooking over time. :)

My little one turned 9 last month and has been after me to assign her more chores. So she has been managing laundrying her clothes which includes folding too. Pants/shorts were easier but tops/tshirts made her whine. How much ever she tried, she would mess up while folding. I had seen this idea on Facebook few months back, so I decided to give it a try.

All that you need for this is either a shoe box or cereal box, scissor and tape.

Procedure to make the folder.

Open the cereal box carefully

Cut and take out the wider the peice and remove all tabs around

Depending on how long you want the tshirt fold, measure and cut the peice vertically. Do the same on the other wider peice too.

Tape this peice to the center peice

 Using the remaining peices of the box, tape the peices on to either side

Your TShirt folder is ready :)

Procedure to fold the tops.
