Messy Preschoolers

We had a rubber stamp made for Marguerite’s 1st birthday. We’d used it on the flaps of her invitation envelopes, kind of like a seal. It’s just here, knocking about somewhere, but I should really get it out. It basically has her name and a clump of daisies. Anyway, Marguerite likes stamps and has acquired quite a number through the years, so I should really look for her name stamp so she can add it to the collection. One of these days, we’ll do the fruit and vegetable stamp project. It will have to be on a nice day, so I’ll have plenty of patience for the huge mess that activity is sure to bring. Gotta love the mess! Did I also tell you that she likes glue? Good thing I like peeling off dried glue from surfaces (that was such a treat in grade school – when you encounter a table with splotches of dried glue on it…). She also likes making sandwiches (and forcing you to eat them), working with such a thick blob of peanut butter you’d think she was spreading cement for laying bricks. She doesn’t stop with the peanut butter either; there has to be jam. All the while she’s doing this, she’s describing or explaining what she’s doing, pretending to be “Marfis” Stewart.

I suppose art (esp at that age) has to be messy, lol
What ideas? :)
