A-Z Challenge- M

M is for Messy Play for Matilda Mae!

Another week, another messy play. We're really embracing the sensory dishes (as I call them) and it's so great to see Midge and Little A get really into it. This week Midge came down with chickenpox so to set something special up wasn't going to happen. We threw together some food colouring and shaving foam then I encouraged Midge to find things she could add into the wash bowl.

You'll notice Midge isn't in these photos which is a shame but she really didn't want her photo taken because of all the spots and lotion on her face. I have respected her wishes which is why Little A is the only one included this week. Midge did however, have a lot of fun too.


Shaving foam, straws, food colouring, plastic balls AND water beads! We love water beads they're fantastic and I'd recommend them to anyone. I got ours from eBay by recommendation for £1 with another coming free!


Little A got seriously messy with this activity. The cupboards and floor smell of a freshly shaved man (I'm not kidding) As you can see lots of extras have been added by Midge who hunted through the toy box and kitchen drawers.

SO much mess! Even I had fun!
Next week I'm thinking of something seriously pink and sparkly!

    1. Thanks Jess they loved it! Oh they are tiny beads that once put in water with hydrate and they feel like gel balls basically. Very fun. I got mine on ebay for a £1. I think they're used for example in vases of water say for center pieces to make the flowers look a bit nicer in the vase? xxx And midge is much better thank you x
