Can we get messy

Its weekend and I hear the question “Grandma…can we get messy?”

Of course it would be rude not to! That’s one of the joys of being a grandma, you get to relive all of those lovely messy moments all over again!

Not only do Mia and I have lots of fun, but being messy actually helps her learning:

Messy children are more likely to be better at learning

One great tip for those who love to paint and glue; use cling film over the table area near to your little one, and over the container that the glue of paint is held in.

In that way, once the good fun, and creative masterpieces are complete, it takes two minutes to pull up the cling film and pop it into the bin. No washing anything only very sticky hands.

For more fun getting messy – this time in the kitchen you might want to try making our Fireman Sam buns.
