(Goblin is 31 months)
Goblin is really into tractors and farms at the moment. We go to Nature Nursery on a farm and it starts again this week so he is very excited and has been talking about farms non stop. He has also started doing a lot of imaginary play. This weekend he decided to do MESSY imaginary farm play.
Goblin really enjoyed moving them around with his tractors and diggers - he told me this was a field. Unfortunately the coffee grounds stick to everything. They stuck to his pyjamas (yes he was still wearing them in the afternoon), and all his toys. But the worst thing was the grounds stuck to his feet and when he later came to sit on the sofa he rubbed the grounds into the beige sofa (yes I know its a ridiculous colour to have when you have a toddler but it was really cheap - probably because its a stupid colour). And of course trying to clean coffee grounds off a sofa with a wetwipe makes wet coffee, so then it turns into a coffee stain. AAAAGH!
We ended up sticking Goblin in a bath and having to deep clean the sofa. The only upside to the activity was how amazing the house smelt - I recommend this activity if you are trying to sell your house! I will not be playing with coffee grounds again in a hurry (much to Goblin's dismay, he has been asking for them). Maybe we'll do it again but outdoors, it is a ridiculously cheap way to provide a fun sensory material.
