Someone on BabyCenter suggested that they let their child play with flour in a bowl, and that their child would stir and pretend to cook with it. In theory this sounded like a fun idea. I was anticipating a mess, and thoughtfully chose a bowl that was deep. The stirring idea was not received well. Piper decided that the spoon would however, be useful to fling flour all over the room. I figured she would attempt to eat it also, but assumed that flour probably wouldn't taste very good, and oh well...it's not going to hurt her. Sure enough she decided to taste it...over and over. It did however keep her entertained for quite a while. Even after it was all over the floor, she still tried to pick it back up and put it back in the bowl. Hmmm...I'm not sure who learned more from this experience?
