In preparation for the Messy Hands Parents Workshop (at the Carrigrohane Parish Centre, Ballincollig on Thursday 15th February from 7pm to 9pm) I have set myself a challenge for the 12 days of Christmas. My aim is to do as much messy play, painting and craft at home with my two boys, something everyday, hopefully.
The reason for this is so that I can practice what I preach to parents during these Parents Workshops. I hope to show that fun messy play activities can be done at home easily and simply. I think this is great opportunity to make the most of this time when we are at home as a family whilst it’s cold outside to have as much messy play fun as possible!
I am fascinated to see how my two and five year old will respond to regular messy play at home. I am pretty sure they will enjoy quality time we will spend together doing messy play activities, but what about their ability to share? Or play independently? Or become more confidence in their creative ability? I do wonder if there will be any change…..
In addition I am excited to try out lots of my simple messy play ideas (many that I have previously recommend via the blog) to see how time consuming they are and whether they really are practical to do at home.
I look forward to sharing my findings with you after Twelfth Night! Wish me luck!!!
