Messy Play (!!!)
Last week was half term where we live. Obviously this means that all schools, nurseries, classes, toddler groups, etc.. take a week off. As parents of course we have no such luck, in my house I’m lucky to get a 5 minute toilet break to myself much less a half term holiday!
Consequently my mummy friends and I were in need of entertainment plans and one of the ideas we had was messy play in our church hall(!)
It was a great idea. Honest.
We learned some lessons, but fun was had and much mess was made. Which was, I guess, the whole point.
So here are a few snaps from last Friday of some very mucky children, as a way of preserving the memories and archiving photos for 18th birthday parties of the future.
We played with paint, cloud dough, ‘gak’ (cornflour/soap/water), custard, and soap foam. The main lesson here is that this is too much at once. We were perhaps overly keen and hadn’t properly considered the level of clean up that would be required.
For future reference, less mess is better mess. 🙂
