PARENTING

Messy Play is important

September 1, 2016

Do you get worried when your Kids make a mess?

Do you frown when they stain clothes while playing?

Let me tell you, You need not.

Once you become a Parent, you need to overlook the mess. Tiny feet trotting from one room to another, searching for naughtiness, makes us more patient.
Its so obvious why work never ends for Mothers. My little one never miss a chance to keep me on my toes. But I love it when he enjoys the mess. I love to see the shine in his eyes.

I remember my childhood, how other Mothers were too wary about their tidy living rooms while my Mother never restricted us to play in every corner of the house. She never restricted our Play area. It is these things we tend to remember not the tidy corners. Now, its my turn:

  • I do not restrict him to 1 room or corner. I do not mind him tumbling down his toys basket in the living room. Sometimes, changing the playing space is all that he need.
  • I do not rush to pack his toys right after he moves out of the room. Its only when we are going out or before sleep.
  • I do not pack him in super cute dress at Home and allow him to smear his clothes with food or dirt.
  • I allow him to play with water- Kids love it. I never mind the effort it requires to clean it up.
  • My little one hate wearing Bibs- he love to spill .Earlier, I tried hard to use them but then I quit and always carry a pair of extra clothing. Its better to see him smile rather than make a fuss.

Moreover, if there is no mess- How can you teach them the habit of cleaning up and cleaning the mess together is always fun.

    Okay, This post is for me, absolutely. My 1 yr old doesn’t know how to sit still or be at one place for more than few seconds. He is always messing up the kitchen, pulling out things and I literally go mad at him, most of the time and then feel bad about it πŸ™ Being a bad mom may be!

    • Ha ha ha…This is true for all Kids Tina.There is nothing like a Bad Mommy dear. I give him his favorite vessels and water..it keeps him busy for long.

    I always dream of having a wall in my house where kids do whatever they want after all Messy play is important ! Wonderful post Upasna !

    • Messy Wall…a nice thing to do. Thanks for stopping by.

  • I completely agree. Sometimes it’s hard for me to let go of my need to not make a mess but that’s when I have to actively remind myself that it’s okay. Really. He is just being a child and it’s just a mess. I was going to do a post on some of the activities my toddler and I do too so this is a great nudge to actually do it. Thanks.

    • You are right Suchitra. We have dedicated mess time too…I will share some more messy play activities in coming posts.
