An Instagram from the week that has been:
Washing the car together was the highlight of our week. The kids enjoyed cleaning, playing and getting wet; I enjoyed having a clean car and not having to sort out squabbles and complaints all morning because they were having such a good time together.
Messy play has that uncanny effect. The thought of messy play initially sends me running the other way – “But it’s MESSY! Think of the cleaning up involved.” Once I get through that initial bump and let kids have messy play, I find that most times, they play so well together and for such sustained periods of time. The clean up is well worth the effort.
Here are 3 ways to have happy messy kids from last week’s Weekly Kids’ Co-op
- Autumn Sensory Play by Organic Aspirations
- Ice cream Dough and Sprinkles by Adventures at home with Mum
- 5 Simple Sensory Bins for Babies and Toddlers by Train up a Child
