My girls LOVE making messes. But let’s be honest, I do not always love it. In fact, most of the time, I’m trying to AVOID making messes. Deep down, I know that making a mess and getting dirty is really fun. Playing like that lets a child’s imagination run wild and builds their creativity. So sometimes, messy play is a necessity! With a few friends and their tots, create an EPIC messy playdate using these fun ideas…
