T' Time {#52}

I have a sweet, fun lady to introduce to you today!  My take the time to guest is Andie from Crayon Freckles blog.  We've never met in person, but have been blogging sisters and confidants for a few months and I think she's pretty special.  So here we Andie!

"hello birds! 
i'm andie from crayon freckles.  i'm a stay-at-home mom to my 3 year old boy and my almost 16 year old stepdaughter.  i home-preschool my son.  spending time with him one-on-one daily fills my heart.  we are so blessed to be able to spend our days together.
my Take The Time To challenge is...
                                              get down and dirty

play is a child's work.  
as a former preschool teacher, getting messy is one of my favorite things to do.
  i think that it's important to remember that children are hands on learners.
  i like to keep the limitations on  activities to a minimum to encourage his exploration.
  that being said, our motto in our house is "if you don't make a mess, you're not having fun!"

need some ideas?
play with shaving cream 
have a car wash
cook together
(salt dough)

paint with unconventional items
(lego painting)

so take an hour or so and get messy!  have fun, find your inner child, and play away!

blessings to all of you!

Thanks, so much, sweet lady!  I LoVe the idea of painting with legos.  My girls are going to really enjoy that...and then I'll just hose them off outside!
