Messy Play is a hands-on sensory experience. In these recurring events, we will explore a variety of materials that are different each time. We may dig in oatmeal or colored rice, paint with construction trucks, feel slimy spaghetti noodles, or get messy with oobleck! Some weeks are messier than others, and it's always fun, educational, and focused on tactile sensory play!
*Be sure you and your toddler wear clothing that can get messy!
*Materials used are non-toxic and washable
Why Messy Play?
Children learn best when they actively engage with their environment and use all their senses. Young children are in a very concrete stage of development- they need to SEE and FEEL their world in order to understand it. By engaging in sensory play combined with skilled adult partners, they learn about a variety of textures, materials, and properties in the concrete manner they understand best.
Through Messy Play, children will:
— Engage with a variety of textures and materials
— Learn about material properties and how they change (such as soft, sticky, stretchy, bubbly)
— Develop cognitive skills (problem-solving, cause and effect)
