Messy Play for Matilda – moon sand

Messy Play.

There, I said it without screaming. It’s not that I’m a neat freak or anything, well ok, I am a teensy bit, but here I am sitting at the laptop when I could be hoovering the crumbs off the floor or emptying the dishwasher, so I’m not totally obsessed or anything *looks around kitchen guiltily*.

The thing is messy play troubles me. I know it’s one of the most brilliant things you can do with your kids, it helps their fine and gross motor skills, relieves stress and sparks their imagination and creativity, but it stresses me out a bit. Am I the only one?

Well, anyway after reading lots of posts over at Edspire , Waterbirthplease and Ghostwritermummy about their ‘Tuff Spots’ (I thought perhaps they needed an extra strong cleaning product at first – true story) I decided to put my concerns aside and leap in with both feet. Well, not my feet exactly, but the toddler’s. So I ordered a Tuff-Spot-ulike (it’s a builder’s mixing tray) and made a batch of moon-sand using this recipe. Then on a sunny day I put the sunshade up in the garden for the baby and let Curly Girl loose in her sand tray. Here’s what happened.

And I didn’t have to sit on my hands once.

I’m linking up with Jennie’s linky Messy Play for Matilda in memory of her beautiful daughter.

    If all players are wrong the murderer gets
    away and everyone loses. Unfortunately for me as an addict,
    I need my crime fix. That is the new craze in on the internet gaming, and numerous girls and teens are possessing a blast.

    The owner decided after the event to donate half of the proceeds back to the students.
    At the end of the party all of the papers write down who they think was the
    prohibition agent. Spice things up by including these Halloween-themes recipes:.
