Edible messy play! My 18mo still likes to put everything in his mouth and I’m constantly wiping (non-toxic!) paint out of his mouth when we do painting. So I thought I’d create a messy play that he could eat if he wanted to.
This ‘edible dirt’ is simply flour, cocoa and cornflakes (the cornflakes both for texture and because we had some that needed using!) and some water to make it clump together like soil. This gave the boys their very own dirt pit to play in. They both loved it and dug around for ages!
