Do your kids...

make a mess when they eat? Mine eat at the table but it seems no matter what they eat, half of it ends up on the floor. They are two and four. Are they too young to not make a mess or are they just messy?

  • All of my older kids made messes until they hit about Kindergarten, and my youngest is 4, he still makes messes when he eats. I would say that is just the age.

  • they´re too young, but have them help you clean up (even if it´s not perfect, the idea is that they see the table should be clean after eating)

  • I do make them clear their plates and wipe off the table.
