Messy Play

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

I found an awesome blog post about how important it is to get messy when playing. A child’s body learns from the whole experience of being tactile and feeling their environment and the experience that what they are working with gets all over them.  As a parent, you have to remember how important it is, and let your kids get messy.

In fact, you should encourage it and plan for it.  You can plan messy craft activities or encourage your child to help with some hands on messy cooking.

Some good messy play activities.

  • Slime
  • Regular Play-Doh
  • Clay
  • Glue
  • Fingerpaints
  • Foam
  • Fun Foods like Jellies, Jams, Peanut Butter, Jello, etc.
  • Snow
  • Soap, Bubble Bath, Bath Foams, etc.
  • Water
