Enjoy the Mess! ETHANProject Wrap Up

Tagged Under : , ,

Well, after my blog was down for several days, it is finally back up! (With a little help 🙂 ) And so now I am finally going to be able to post the final ETHANProject challenge Enjoy the Mess and wrap up!

Enjoy the MessI have to admit I have a hard time sometimes just letting the kids make a mess. I mean, you wouldn’t know that by looking at my house, haha, but I hate dirty hands touching me! I don’t want to be sticky because you touched me with your syrup hands! But in honor of it being the final week, I decided to do a bunch of messy projects and we just had a blast! I am so glad that I was able to let myself go and enjoy the mess.

Enjoy the Mess!

In the top row, you have pictures of the zucchini bread we made together, because of course, I don’t know about you but I find cooking in general to be messy and then throw in the help of a 3-year-old and it gets even messier real quick. Then, in the middle picture, we played with some cloud dough (made using this recipe). The last picture in the top row is the sidewalk chalk paint we made! In the middle row, you have us finger painting, which as you can see started out relatively neat but then turned into full on hand panting. And the bottom row was sensory play with shaving cream – this was definitely Dominic’s favorite and kept him busy for almost half an hour! And then my kitchen smelled like shaving cream for the next 3 days also haha.

I can not say enough how glad I am to have been involved in the ETHANProject. I had just so, so much fun and I think the boys really did too. It definitely pushed us to make the most of our summer, but without putting a ton of pressure on us at the same time. And I know it certainly pushed me out of my comfort zone of doing the same old same old thing every day – a rut that is all too easy to fall into! I hope that you had a great summer too! Feel free to share your summer highlights in the comments!
