A Hearty Messy Table

Pouring, scooping, measuring and more…
that’s what the messy table is for.

Here is another idea that promotes motor development and color/shape recognition through play.

Here is what you need:

A plastic container
Red Food Coloring
Small Hearts (I found ours at Wal-mart)
Spoons, Cups

My son played with this for the longest time. He enjoyed seeing the water change, and catching the hearts in a measuring cup.

He pretended that the hearts were fish.
“Mama, Hearts"(As he makes a fish face)

I’m not sure which was cuter, the fact that he said “Heart”…or the Toddler Fish Face. :)
