We love messy play in Reception - not only is it lots of fun, it also offers a wealth of learning and development benefits.
Messy play -
Helps children to develop imaginative skills as they engage and explore freely
Encourages curiosity about the world around them
Helps to develop communication and language skills
Empowers children to make choices and encourages independence
Nurtures good concentration skills as children become absorbed in an activity
Promotes physical development, both fine and and gross motor skills
It’s fun and builds memories and your bond with your child... and the best learning is always fun!
These activities are for children to enjoy under the supervision of a responsible adult to ensure safety at all times, remember to wash those hands before and after messy play and above all else have fun!
