|was not THAT easy to get ghost shapes - but practice makes...
|this one was Michael's favourite ghost
|face to face with the ghosts
|Michael wondered if they could be picked up
|carefully he lifted them up
|and then one by one splashed them down
|loudly exclaiming how wonderful the shaving foam felt
|mixing it all up was fun!
|before the bath was over Michael had turned himself into a ghost - he was white from head to toe, he was almost purring from the sensory delight!
|photo opportunity with his favourite ghost before it too met with destruction!
While 98% of children 3-5 years of age scored at the genius level on the creativity test, only 32% of the same children did so at ages 8-10, and then only 10% at 13-15 years of age. The researchers also gave the same test to a large group of adults over the age of 25 and only 2% of scored at the genius level. http://thebiggeridea.co.uk/?p=9
So by offering my children the chance to play, to get in touch with their inner child, I also hope to support them in maintaining their creativity throughout their life. Time will tell I suppose...
Oh, and just in case you were wondering - yes it did make a mess - but there was no problems cleaning it up - in fact Michael stayed in the bath with the shower - to clean all the grey goo off himself and to clean the bath - when he got out I just finished off the last bit. Michael enjoyed the clean up almost as much...
