Time for Tots - Activity #6

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well and healthy? This week my mom is visiting her mother in Bain’s Kloof. Nancy and I have to play ‘house’ and look after our sweet little sisters!

This week I am challenging you to ‘Let Your Little Ones Get Messy!’ Give them a tub of powder paint and let them go for it. I put Rebekah outside at our little plastic table so that she could go mad with the paint and not worry me by decorating our walls in a new fashion!

She started off by doing a neat painting...

Then she experimented with another colour!

...It got messier and messier....

She loved rubbing the paint all over her hands!

“Hello” – Rebekah age 1.10months

“That was fun!”

I let Rebekah wash her hands in a bowl of water, but she ended up playing in the water and making an even bigger mess...she had lots of fun!! Sometimes toddlers can’t really ‘make a mess’, so by allowing them to do so you give them freedom to ‘mess’ on your terms – they will then understand that there is a time and a place to have fun!

'To the Tots'

Looks like your little sister had a lot of fun!
When I was little my mom would cover our table with big sheets of paper
then we would ware my dad old shirts (they were like dresses on us) then
my mom would get us paint, and we would paint to our hearts content.
We would get the paint everywhere, on our hands, our faces, and sometimes the paper 
In Christ
