This incredible towel folding trick is sure to put a smile on your face during lockdown.
In these uncertain times, one mum has decided to try and cheer her children up by learning a brand new skill.
While thousands of social media users have been sharing their housework tips online, Lauren Worthington revealed her very unusual new hack.
Taking to Facebook group Hinch Army Cleaning Tips, the savvy mum shared photos of animals she has created using bath towels.
Seen in the series of snaps, Lauren started by making two adorable monkeys which she hung from a clothes hanger on the hooks in her bathroom.
She also created an elephant and a couple of adorable mice after watching YouTube tutorial videos online.
As well as putting a smile on her little ones face's with a new creature each day, it looks like towel folding is also fun for parents, as Lauren captioned the photos: “Spicing up the house work 😂”
A final picture shows a whole family of rabbits, as she added: “My final attempt at towel folding for my new gained ‘skill’ this week haha. Had to make this up mostly as not many videos on rabbit ones x”
Naturally, other Facebook users were very impressed and the photos gained more than 950 likes and plenty of comments.
One person replied: “Absolutely brilliant! And literally just what I need to see ! Xx”
“So clever!! Amazing 😍,” said another, while a third wrote: “Oh wow , that’s actually spectacular!!!!! ❤️ love it ! X”
And a fourth asked: “Love it :) tutorial? Pretty please?"
This comes after a dad shared his own hilarious video of him pranking his sons for a bit of silence during lockdown.
