Seconds from disaster
Luna and Blake love cooking, well, they love mixing and messing, so I set this up for them while I was working in the kitchen recently. Just the right height, an old shelf, screwed on top of two old speakers, a few bowls of various sizes, I picked up a couple of small sieve sets, and small measuring spoons, some kid size whisks, add a couple of jugs of water, some bowls with old flour, stale bran and oats, a few little dishes of spices, a couple of little essence bottles with water to add and mm-mmm good times.
I made sure there was a proper glass jug for each and numerous bowls for ‘ingredients’.
Serious business (Yes, Blake is wearing undies over his pajama pants).
“See, this is too thick, too thick for crepes.”
Just moments after this photo, I must confess, Blake tipped a whole jug of sticky wet floury good stuff all over the floor. I sounded really cool, and so was repeated a couple more times.
Because, sometimes I see these amazing and inspiring photos of play-at-home kids set ups, that are IMMACULATE, like all the containers, all the shelving units, all the natural-nonplastic-organic-colourful-multisensory-play-stuff so well ORGANIZED looking. Things might start out neat and tidy, and sometimes what I call organised here, but the reality for me, is things are somewhat chaotic, and messy. Have fun, get messy, tidy up, eat food, get messy, tidy up…
