Messy play and fun with food

Messy play and fun with food

How much fun can one baby have with some cooked spaghetti?

This much!

Our messy play session this week involved fun with food and was equally enjoyed by the dog. If you’d like to see more of our baby sensory play sessions click here and here

    Love his faces throughout this play! I think he likes what he’s discovered very much. Thank you for sharing!

    Looks like plenty of messy fun there and no problem if some gets eaten too! #MagicMoments

      Just enough so there wasn’t mountains of mess and I think he had a nibble too.

      It most certainly is. My little one loves anything non toy so messy play is perfect.

    Oh what fun – saw your instagram pic too #OrdinaryMoments

      He loved it, I was only taking one for instagram then got carried away, so glad I caught it though.

    Thank you for linking up

    Haha love it. I remember doing this with Monkey, hoping it would help him want to eat pasta when he was in a particularly fussy phase, my mum thought I was bonkers though lol! Looks like she loved it 🙂 xx #magicmoments

      It goes against everything we’d have been taught about not playing with food doesn’t it!

    Love all his different expressions as he studies the spaghetti.

      He was utterly engrossed, it was amazing to watch. I love that he’s experiencing so many firsts

    What gorgeous shots, I love these! It’s amazing how something so simple can provide so much entertainment isn’ it? x

      It really is, luckily we haven’t wasted too much money on baby toys as he much prefers messy play

    Spaghetti is a great sensory experience for toddlers. It looks like he had fun exploring it!
    Thanks for sharing #LetKidsBeKids

      We’ve tried rice and pasts and this has definitely been the best so far. I love our messy play sessions, he puts EVERYTHING in his mouth so food is always the best option.

    Great photos! Love the facial expressions! 🙂 x

    No better way to eat your pasta! xx
