Messy Play

Here are some easy messy play ideas using items you probably already have in your kitchen.  

Dessert Painting- Jell-o or Pudding- Have your child paint with pudding on cardboard or construction paper.  If you don’t have pudding made already- paint with the powder.  All you need is liquid glue, let your child make a design and then sprinkle the pudding powder for some color.  Jell-o powder and glue also makes a great picture.  When the powder touched the glue it becomes very bright. 

Cool whip or whip cream- Spray some on a large tray or piece of tin foil.  Ask your child to write his/her name in the cream or copy a shape.  Write letters and numbers.  Erase it with a swipe of your palm and start all over again. 

Mashed Potato flakes- you can mix them with water and let your child play in the cool slippery mixture or use the flakes to hide puzzle pieces or game pieces in.  Let your child dig in a larger bowl of flakes and find objects.
