I do a lot of crafts with the boys. They love it and so do I. It also allows them to get a little messy which isn't a norm in my house because even if they get messy I'm quick to clean them up. And Jackson, being my mini-me, doesn't like to be dirty. at. all. Big Poppa LOVES to be messy and the only thing he loves more than being messy is making the mess. I'm teaching him to clean up and he's teaching me to loosen up. Austin has definitely made me much more lax when it comes to cleaning. I've learned that it doesn't hurt to leave toys lying around all day (most days). Anyway, each boy got a stamp set for Christmas and Jackson has asked me every day since to play with his stamps. Well, we finally got around to it. It was a huge mess, but they had a good time. And my Magic Eraser and homemade detergent got all the ink off of everything! Phew!
Jackson stampin it up!
Austin getting the hang of it...
Messy stamping fun! Notice Austin had more fun stacking his stamps than actually stamping. But he sure loved grabbing the ink bad and rubbing it all over his hands. He's a mess. ;)
