Good idea?

My cousin Erin posted about a fun thing her little boy likes to do. So I thought, hey, I bet Molly would like that too! Before I jumped in the shower yesterday, I got out a pan, some flour, cookie cutters, and some other spoons and things for her to play with.

She obviously enjoyed it!

But it wasn't very long before she had flour pretty much everywhere!


It's hard to tell in this picture, but flour was all over the floor, the table and the chair! She was definitely entertained, but it took a bit to clean her and the disaster area up! She had to get into the tub and I don't think I got all the flour out yet! Ha! I guess it was still worth it, right? She was entertained for an hour, I'd say. Thanks for the idea Erin!!

Wow! You are a much nicer mom than I am! It made for a cute post with awesome pictures, though. :)

Good idea!!! You were able to get ready in "peace" and she had the time of her life from what I can see. But um.......don't tell my boys about it, they'll be WAY messier than that, I'm sure!!!!!

I love how it is totally covering her head to toe! I agree that it's okay to let your kids get a little messy're creating memories! Ari loves to help me in the kitchen which usually ends in a mess but he loves it! Also...LOVED the skirt and dress you made!
