We bought some dirt for planting and it just turned out to hold way to much water for planting but instead of letting it go to waste and trashing it we decided to get messy. I honestly was thinking of what is something we normally do not get dirty with and that is when a tea party came to mind.
We grabbed some of the things we normally use for our tea parties and added water to the dirt we had and they went crazy over it. Making mud pies and muddy soup. In the end my daughter decided to sit in the bin with mud and cover herself witch was okay this time. It ended up as a muddy mess but well worth it.
