    Why messy play?


    Babies and young children learn and develop through play, but especially through unstructured, exploratory play. This allows them to make their own discoveries using their senses, curiosity and knowledge.

    Messy play fosters your child's curiosity, imagination and experimentation and practices good concentration skills.

    Because messy play and sensory play are all about exploring, there's no right or wrong way. This type of creative play gives kids endless ways to develop and learn.

    Young children rely on sensory input to learn about their environment, and research suggests that sensory play helps build neural connections that support their thought, learning and creativity.

    The sensory experience of messy play enables them to understand how things feel, smell and taste and it also supports their physical development.
