30 Days, 30 Ways of Connecting with Your Child {Day 17}: Messes Make Memories

30 Days of Connecting with Kids Day 17


“What are you going to do? Everything, is my guess. It will be a little messy, but embrace the mess. It will be complicated, but rejoice in the complications.” — Nora Ephron

Finlee and Chloe love to see my hubby and I get dirty.

I don’t not what it is but they can giggle for hours about seeing us with mud on our clothes or faces. So head out in the backyard and get dirty.

Make mud pies or cupcakes in your very own mud kitchen, dig for worms, or have a mud ball fight (similar to a snowball fight but instead of throwing snowballs you’re going to throw mudballs).

So, this week, take time out and just get out there with the kids and get messy.

Dig your hands into the earth, squish it around. Let the kids splash in muddy puddles without telling them to “stop it!” and just have tons of fun making memories with all this muddy mess.
