Winter here in Winnipeg is cold and seems to go on forever. So what’s a mom to do to keep her little one occupied? Simple! Just crack open the cupboards and let them play! No, I don’t necessarily mean the pots and pans or the Tupperware, although both are great options. We like messy play over here, so of course we are in the pantry. This really simple activity bought us a playdate, two happy babies, and about 45 minutes of play and exploration that didn’t require too much baby proofing.
We used a drop cloth (plastic tablecloth from the dollar store) to contain the mess, some construction paper, a can of sweetened condensed milk, and two drops of food colouring per container.
