Food can be fun

As a kindergarten teacher, I understood the benefits of doing sloppy art projects, but often hesitated because of the clean up. When I worked with toddlers and preschoolers I was more willing to let them get messy.

As a mommy of a toddler I know that messes are a part of life, so why not just go for it. On the days that Blake gets a bath (he only gets one every other day because of his eczema) I let him have at it with his yogurt. Yes, I'm trying to get him to use a spoon, but what is the fun in that when you can just get it everywhere???

Thought you might enjoy a few pics and the video of party of our yogurt fun yesterday! video

  3. Ah, always fun. We've always tried coordinating with bath time, too. Color Easter eggs right before bedtime. Makes life easier. Then plop in the tub and put to bed.
