Last week I received a lovely hamper and within it was armfuls of black shredded paper, as soon as I saw it I knew what I was going to do with it, messy play with Little 3. Now that both girls are at school full time I want to do more with Little 3 and get back to the creative, messy and baking activities that I used to do so much with the girls. I am not a lover of mess and have shied away from messy activities a bit since Little 3 came along, the idea of three children playing with gloop and paint scared me a little, after all the carpet in the lounge is pale and the kitchen, with the washable floor, is just too small.
I retrieved the tuff spot from the garden where it has been used for water play and dolls picnics all summer and put the paper inside along with Little 3's wooden dinosaurs.
There was then a little bit of throwing and dropping it all over his head mixed with lots of giggles, admittedly initiated by me!
Little 3 seemed to enjoy his shredded paper play and I did too. I have been thinking what we could play with next time, cereals maybe?
