All children learn through play. Messy play is a fun and interesting way for children to explore and learn about the world around them. There are many reasons why messy play can help children learn. It helps children become more independent. Children take part in an activity that they create. They are able to decide how they want to play and can use the materials in the way that they choose. This builds confidence because the child is in control. It helps develop movement, co-ordination and control. Mini Mess sessions are structured to allow play that gives children the opportunity to explore materials using their hands, arms, feet and bodies. Sessions are an hour and a half combining different activities such as Mini Groovers & Movers music time, messy play specifically designed for little ones (so no gluing or sticking involved), free playtime, action songs and refreshments.
