Let There Be Mess

I am particularly organized in every way, but when it comes to fostering creativity on my child I just let the mess take over. I read that creative spirits should freely focus on creating and not be distracted by the need to keep the workplace in order. My toddler is no exception. You should see the mess he creates when he kneads, cuts, and rolls those play dough. My consolation is hearing how he labels every shapes he created out of the dough, his imagination is really working. I just let loose and not become too critical about the mess during creative play. I try to nurture and cultivate my son's ability and desire to be creative.
