Let’s get messy!

My kids are no stranger to getting their hands dirty. I want them to enjoy the joy of digging their toes in mud, the discovery of when digging you may find a worm or two, and the leaning about the said worm by poking, prodding, and asking questions. I call this childhood.

So when I mentioned an idea of a messy playdate to a fellow mommy and she said yes, the mess was on. We actually turned it into a bigger event (it ended up being an extra session of “Mornings with Mommy” that our church puts on). We had a jello dinosaur dig, bugs in dirt discovery area, a spray paint area (watered down tempera paint in spray bottles and squirt guns), a cloud (tarp covered in shaving cream), oobleck (cornstarch/water mix), and Husband’s contribution of a “kid wash”…

Think my kids liked it? 😉  We already want to do it again.
