I am busy making a lake for all the animals!
The Children have certainly enjoyed water play out on the yard and in the classrooms during these hot, first days of school. As you can see, children’s work can be very messy. Yet, she is busy making a habitat for the wild animals. During this play she is learning the names of the animals, pairing them up and caring for them on a hot day. I imagine working with real animals, whether in the wild or in a wild life park can be very rewarding yet messy.
My point, you ask? It was wonderful that our little one came dressed for her messy job and so there were no worries about needing to keep clean. A suggestion would be to keep a few plastic bags, extra clothes and shoes in your car. It's perfect for those days when your child may be covered from head to toe in mess and you would prefer not to get it all over your car. Another good reason to keep an extra change of clothes on hand, is for those days you plan to go somewhere else other than home. A quick change of the clothes and into the bag will do the trick.

Remember PLAY is children’s WORK and it can be oh so MESSY!
