Messy Poem When Your Child Comes Home Messy Red paint in the hair? Blue paint on the jeans? Sand in the shoes? White socks that look brown? Sleeves a little bit damp? YOU’RE CHILD probably... Worked with a friend Created a masterpiece Learned a new skill, Had a great time Developed new language skills YOUR CHILD probably didn't... Become bored Do repetitive tasks YOU probably... Paid good money for those clothes Will have trouble getting the red paint out THE CAREGIVER probably... Was aware of your child's needs and interests Spent time planning a challenging activity for the children Encouraged the children to try new things Put smocks on the children Was worried that you might be concerned
*Try to remember your favorite activity when you were four years old. Was it outdoor play with water, mud, and dress up clothes, with friends? Young children really learn when they are actively involved in play, not when someone is talking to them.
Planned messy fun things help young children learn!
