MESSY PLAY CLASSES
Splish! Splash! Splosh! Children love getting dirty. Water, sand, finger paint, play dough, and clay—these are all favorite play materials. Adults, on the other hand, are sometimes unwilling to make these materials freely available. After all, they are messy. They involve lots of clean up. And children don’t really need to make such a mess, do they? The answer may be that children need to make a mess more than we may think.
ARTJAMMING Messy Play offers an outstanding opportunity for children to grow and learn. Young children (classes are from 8 months up to 4 years) can enjoy and benefit from messy play. Infants and toddlers may simply explore the materials and enjoy textures and smells. As preschoolers grow, they will begin to ask questions and experiment with the materials to find answers. Each child will benefit in his own way.
ARTJAMMING Messy Play helps children to develop concepts. These concepts are the basis for later learning. ARTJAMMING Messy Play is designed with children's natural curiosity in mind. It encourages a positive approach to new experiences. There is no "right" way for children to do messy play. This builds self-confidence and self esteem. Through messy play, children can develop concentration, problem solving and planning.

Children work at their own pace and mess is ENCOURAGED! Booking is essential as places are limited. Please dress to mess as our materials DO stain clothing.
