A Beautiful Thing or Two
I'm a Gramma but I was a kid. It is never too early to teach a child anything - only too early to let her do it by herself. Too young, too old, too short, too tall, phooey! Set the iron to barely there or turn it off and wait a minute. Just long enough to cool down but still be able to show some results. (Note: Anything you let them do they will be less likely to sneak behind your back to "help".) Although she's probably 10 now and doing very well in the ironing department.
