Do your kids like messy play? You know, making mud pies, squishing gloop, painting with their feet, building sand castles, squelching foam? Messy play is a fun, open ended activity that allows children’s creativity to go wild. It is also cheap and easy to set up. And did I mention FUN? Pebble and I have had LOTS of laughs getting messy. Here are a few ideas that you might like to try:
- cookie decorating
- pouring with lentils
- experimenting with marker and glue
- making coffee filter flowers
- making ooey gooey creative mess
- painting homemade cards
- bath play
- foam play
- bath paint
- spray paint
- salt dough beads
- tempera play
- shaving foam paint printing
- feet painting
- gloop play
Phew! That’s a lot of mess :) It’s safe to say that my laundry basket gets pretty full with messy, gloopy, gooey clothes. I’m no laundry princess – I like to chuck it all in, press a couple of buttons and have it come out clean.
Cold Power asked if I’d like to try out their Cold Power Sensitive Touch to get our mess all cleaned up. I was keen to give it a go for a couple of reasons – first of all, it’s safe for sensitive skin, and our Pebble is a delicate little flower. I always have to be careful of the product that I use with her, she gets rashy, bumpy, itchy skin very easily. Cold Power Sensitive Touch also gives clothes a squeaky clean while saving energy costs because it washes in cold water. It worked great in my front loader, but you can also get it for top loaders, both in liquid or powder form. We tried the liquid and it made everything fresh and clean, even after messy play.
So what are you waiting for? Go and get messy! You can always get clean again and it’s well worth the fun.
