DAY 304 of 365 Days of Literacy for Kids:
Obsolete words are no longer in general use and may have fallen out of favor for nearly a century or more, but who says obsolete and rarely used words can’t be revived by kids who love words?
Today’s word is WASHBALL… simply, a ball of soap used for washing or shaving.
The word washball is traced back to the early 17th century; the word soap is more common today, but means the same thing.
Kids will love the word washball because it’s a new “old” way to describe or define a common word… just a bit more fun and interestingly.
Use the word washball with your kids and grandkids today. Heck… use washballs with your kids and grandkids today!
