Have you ever noticed that a child’s favorite activity, game or toy always seems to include making a mess? Granted some messes are not of epic proportions, but they can still present a problem at clean-up time.
As parents, you want them to have a good time, but you are usually the one left with clean-up duty. Which means you are far more likely to find activities that do not involve making any kind of a mess. Actually clean up time is a good way to introduce children to chores, giving them age appropriate responsibilities and rewarding them on a job well done.
It does not need to be a huge undertaking, keeping in mind the child's age and attention span. Perhaps they can pick up the extra crayons after coloring, or put clothes where they belong after a dress-up playtime. Something that they can accomplish fairly easily is best, as it builds up their confidence.
However, if you are still concerned about making a mess, and your child can not come up with anything to do that might be "mess free" there are some things that you can try in order to keep the mess to a minimum. For example, children love finger painting, with all of its hands on fun. If this is the case in your family consider getting a Hands on Finger Painting Wall Toy
. This amazing toy is heat sensitive and when children place their hands or fingers on the surface, the colors change and an image will remain for a short period of time. It mounts on the wall and there are no crayons, markers or paint required to enjoy its finger painting. It may quickly become your child's favorite toy, not to mention yours.
