I am often asked how do I manage to blog and look after my almost 4-year-old. This is one of the ways. Setting up invitations for him to play. I presented him with a tray (with a small lip edge ) of flour and asked him what he wanted to put in it. He went and got his cars, diggers and extended to building a construction site with some plastic tubes.
He played next to me for over an hour and then decided he needed to add water. That’s when things got a little messy but it extended his play for another 20 mins which was great. Total cost for this activity was a bag of flour. If he had not added the water, then it could have been re-used again and again. Lots of fun for him, lots of work done for me.
