Re: Do you let your toddlers get dirty/jump in puddles?
Yes. My kids get filthy playing nearly every day. They are allowed to play with water and sand and such indoors (no carpeting), and a huge portion of our backyard is dirt that we keep rotatilled(sp?) so that the kids can dig around and make messes in it. My kids don't know how to play clean but they are happy and have great imaginations.
