You use "do" when you are about to make an action. You use "make" when you are about to create something.
Trecia was requested by her mother to make a simple dish for their dinner. (what will she make? She will make a dish because it is something that can be created)
Trecia will do the laundry tomorrow. (what will she do? - laundry, because it is something that you cannot create, but you can perform it.)
I hope this helps.
