A Messy Day

Messy play. Two words that fill me with equal parts excitement and horror! Archie's favourite thing to do by far is painting and drawing. I have to admit I don't get the paints out as much as Archie would like which makes me feel bad, but the thought of the clean up can be a bit of a nightmare, especially when he's asking for the paints at 7:00am! But recently, the boys and I decided to throw caution to the wind and have the messiest of messy play days (I know. We're wild!)
 We started off quite safe, filling one of our plastic storage boxes up with ball pit balls, which Archie delighted in turning upside down and scattering across the floor!
Daddy also did some juggling, which Archie found very amusing!

Play fights were also on the agenda!

 We made up a batch of moon sand (which you can find out more about in my new toddler hacks video here.) Archie loved the texture of it and I have to admit we had quite a bit of fun making shapes  & sandcastles too. It was like having a mini beach in the kitchen! It was all fun and games until he decided to start sprinkling it all over the floor and stamping through it!
After that we cracked open the paints! He'd been screaming PAINT! at the top of his lungs for about half an hour, so you can imagine how excited he was when we finally filled the pots up with brightly coloured stuff. The house was in a bit of a state by the end of our messy afternoon to say the least, and of course it was left to me to clean it up whilst the boys went and enjoyed an ice lolly. (It's alright for some!)
 Plenty came in very handy indeed! It really is a lot stronger than your average, supermarket own kitchen roll. Great for mopping up spillages and wiping over floors. I just dampened it with water and my kitchen beach disappeared! I really enjoyed our afternoon together and afterwards we made a promise to do it more often. After all, a little bit of mess never hurt anyone! If you want to see more of what we got up to in video form & how we use Plenty, plus some rather clever (if I do say so myself) tips and hacks for toddlers, the video is below!
