As part of a college project one of our students on placement invited parents in to the centre to explain the benefits of messy play.
Among the benefits, messy play is great for developing creativity and imagination.
Our student worked with the parents and children to show examples of how to use everyday items in the home like flour, cooking oil and salt to create messy play sessions.
Parents were given a booklet with ideas and instructions around messy play. It was a great opportunity for parents and children to come together and learn something new.
