The Huggies Messy Play Challenge

Huggies have set a challenge in the form of messy play , They want to see your messiest photos of your little ones and yes there's prizes for the messiest entries!

Before a few weeks ok I would of freaked and ran away from the word messy child. I hate mess and the thought of Oli ever getting messy was a nightmare that I didn't want to experience.

But you know what? It wasn't a nightmare at all , when asked at our local baby group if Oli wanted to join in with some painting I hesitated at first but agreed. I stripped him down to his nappy and let him loose with a paintbrush.
He was in his element and it bought smiles to my face seeing him have such a fantastic time getting messy. He even created his first painting which is now proudly pinned to the fridge.

We tried to recreate some mess yesterday for the Huggies challenge at lunch time when we had curry , it resulted in not that much mess but in Oli bending his spoon which I did get on video.

Here are the rules :

  1. The messier your baby is in the photo the better. (The challenge is cleaning up!)
  2. Post the photo to your blog with The Messy Play by Huggies Wipes challenge. (It can be an old photo or a previous post).
  3. Send a link of your blog post featuring your Messy Play photo to @Huggies_UK on Twitter or to participate.
  4. Check out to see all the blogger submissions and links to their blogs. Submissions will also be shouted out by @Huggies_UK on Twitter.
  5. The top 3 messiest entries will receive Huggies® gift packs of Huggies merchandise.
