My daughter had a moustache. A bonafide, clear-as-day moustache. It wasn’t milk, it was flour.
Kids often have more fun with simple household items than with toys. My toddler recently discovered flour and is all kinds of crazy for playing in the white dust for hours. Yes, I said hours. This is good, very, very good!
I set up a play table with a muffin tin, bowls and plastic cups, a cookie scoop, and a few other odds and ends from my kitchen and let her go to town in the flour. She got to tie on a cute apron, and get her hands dirty- kids love that! I loved having a few minutes to tidy up and cuddle with my wee baby.
Sure, she had flour in every nook and cranny around the kitchen and wore that ‘stache like a regal gentlelady, but the sensory playtime and fun she had was well worth the time spent cleaning up. Honestly, it only took a few minutes to get it all up off the tiled floor.
Next time you’re short on toddler play activities, bust out the flour and let the fun begin!
