A Fine Mess

 

A Fine Mess 1024x512

Autumn is here! And it's the perfect time to make a fine mess!

Messy Play is something we should always encourage our children to engage in. As the clocks go back and damper weather arrives, Autumn is the ideal time to introduce messy play into the school day or weekend play activities.

Many parents will hear the word "messy" and instantly be cautious of it. But honestly, you shouldn't be. Here's why...

Many and varied studies have shown that “messy” play can contribute massively to the cognitive and creative development of young children. In fact, this type of play can continue to have numerous benefits throughout their entire lives.

The term “messy” is often seen as negative and therefore undervalued but to give children the opportunity to explore, create and combine new materials without a necessary end result is a massive step towards their physical and emotional well being. Without boundaries in their exploration they will develop confidence in their ability, become risk takers in their learning and be happy to try new things with confidence.

 

Messy play allows

  • Children to explore without a focus on making or producing something.
  • The opportunity to mould and manipulate new materials.
  • Children the chance to develop 5 senses in the process of exploration.
  • The chance to engage in new experiences
  • And more more exciting things!
