When I taught preschool, I loved art! Most teachers hated the mess, I looked for more ways to get messy!
Not only do children love messy play, they need it. It is a sensory experience that we should all be able to bring into our home. It usually doesn't require much money and is easier to clean up than you think!
Our messy play examples:
Painting, of course. She isn't ready to use those paintbrushes, but she liked experimenting with them.
Food is the best for messy play with baby; you never have to worry about those hands going in the mouth.
Lena was unsure about the Jello.
Scrambled eggs and a spoon kept her busy for awhile!
Colored Frosting! Yummy and Fun!
This one required a bath afterwards!!! WOW!
Bath time! Let them play! I usually sit next to the tub and read (two birds, one stone!)
Other things we have done:
Cornstarch and Baby Powder
Any water play
Most of all, don't be afraid to get messy too!
