Yoghurt messy play!

Sometimes the spur of the moment ideas turn out to be the best! My toddler (18mo) was a little bit grumpy, and turning down all my activity ideas. Until I suggested ‘playing with yoghurt’. His face lit up and he said ‘yeth’ with a broad grin! So I completely improvised and put some yoghurt into a couple of bowls, and got out a few bits and bobs from around the kitchen to play with – a spoon, kitchen clip, dinosaur straw, tea strainer and some sprinkles. Who knew you could have so much fun with such simple ingredients! My grumpy toddler was grumpy no longer and he had a whale of a time. Yes, some of the yoghurt got eaten, but hey, it is yoghurt!


Hi! I’m Claire, stay-at-home-mum to two gorgeous boys and a lovely girl. My kids are energetic, spirited and full-of-life, and they certainly keep me on my toes. I love spending time with them and seeing them learn and experience new things – I hope that this blog will give you ideas to try out on the children in your life!
