      Tots Summer Mess workshop

      hi just to let you know about the mission of why i do this work  So why is messy play so valuable? Messy play is often called sensory play, and with good reason – messy play gives children the freedom to explore a huge range of experiences through touch, smell, hearing, seeing and hopefully not too much taste. Children who might be held back elsewhere are told ‘It’s ok to make a mess. It’s OK to explore.’ You’re not just giving children valuable learning experiences. You’re giving them freedom. Remember Spare clothing A lot of the problems with messy play come down to clothes. Whether your worried about a paint splatter on a special dress or an overflowing pile of washing, it’s important that you’re consistent and clear that parents please bring old clothes and that spare clothing is part and parcel of early years play. Aprons are always one option, but they don’t always stop stains, spills, and wet sleeves. What’s more, as this piece from the Curiosity Approach blog argues, they can restrict a child’s play. “Imagine being a child turned away from an exciting activity,” the article questions, “because they have to stop what they are doing to put on a stiff, plastic, wet, paint-splattered apron!” so please remember we take no responsibility on clothing.
