Raising Tots Series on Love, Play, LearnI am so happy to being doing a guest post today for Brittany of the wonderful Love, Play, Learn blog.  Brittany is starting an exciting new series called Raising Tots: Mom to Mom Parenting Series, and I am lucky enough to be the first!

For this series, I wrote about my journey learning to embrace the mess that comes with painting with my little Monkey.  Although we all know messy crafts are good for our little ones, it can be hard for many of us to really enjoy doing it.

Today I share my top ten tips for getting comfortable with that mess, so head on over to Love, Play, Learn and see what we’ve been up to!

  5. Omg, I need this. I’m just like you. I’m laid back, except when it comes to messy. Didn’t know till I had kids. Don’t like wet, sticky, muddy, painty – none of those. This will be helpful because I’ve avoided all paint projects unless it’s a nice day outside where they can freely destroy the ground or drive way. stopping by from Dawn’s Disaster.

  6. I’ll have to check it out sometime, my little girl would love it. 😉
