Are your kids ready for a messy experience? Are you? This edible mud pit is so much fun for your kids to create, but it is a wonderfully tactile activity for them to play with once the creation is complete. This is an especially great activity for those little ones who like to put things in their mouth. With this experience, there is no worries. Everything is edible.
Tactile experiences are great for kids. Children learn through their senses. Tactile and kinesthetic learners are those kids who grow best through hands on experiences. One of my daughters, especially, loves to have her hands in the mess – the sand, the shaving cream, the water, the dirt. You can learn more at Super Baby Online, but I can tell you that the sense of touch is the first sense to develop completely. Kids learn their world through this important sense. Using to learn ones hands is important for developing so many of the skills children will learn throughout their life. The more alive you can make their experiences through touch, the more they are able to take in about their world. This can also be a very calming experience to a highly energetic child.
Don’t be dismayed by the potential mess of this activity. I wrote the majority of this article at Kids Activities Blog, and you can head there to find all of my tips for keeping this a well contained mess. I have easy clean-up tools and tips. You can also find out how I made some of the worms and the exact recipe I used to create our edible mud. I really hope you will head on over to see the full activity. My kids really had a blast digging their hands into this mess and licking while they go.
