Then she sprinkled it on the floor. The counter. Pretty much all around the entire room. Toddlers are such inquisitive creatures!
According to Parents Magazine, toddlers making an enormous mess is totally normal! The magazine said that toddlers are simply discovering the world the only way they know how: by delving into their surroundings with gusto -- and that produces a lot of cleanup for Mom and Dad.
"Combine this curiosity with the desire to be independent (and a lack of fully developed manual skills), and you can count on lots of mishaps. While messy play is beneficial, it doesn't mean you should let your kid run wild."
That's why experts recommend parents should ask their child to clean up after any major mess instead of doing so themselves! Involving their rambunctious little one during cleanup time teaches them that there are consequences to their actions and will hopefully prevent another giant mess from happening in the future!
