Come along and MESS IT UP and leave the cleaning up to us!
Join Team Eddie Catz for our fun themed Messy Play Sessions!
Babies and toddlers will have the freedom to move around at their own pace between activity stations filled with sand, pasta, jelly and foam plus a boating pool with bubbles and one with squishy paints for young artists to try their hands at some messy works of art.
Our sessions include themes such as Frozen, Fun at the Farmyard and Construction, we also run seasonal events including Halloween and Christmas specials!
The Benefits of Messy Play
‘Babies and toddlers learn and develop through play, but especially through unstructured, exploratory play. Messy play focuses on exploring and experimenting with different materials without any end goal, so as to build or make something. This allows young children to make their own discoveries using their senses, curiosity and knowledge.
Messy and sensory play is all about exploring, there’s not a right or wrong way. This means that any child can participate, whatever their ability, and benefit from it. It’s also a very sociable activity, but one that doesn’t rely on words. Children can play together and share their discoveries without needing to explain things verbally. However, it can also be a way of encouraging speech, for example by describing sensations, textures etc. and helping your child build their vocabulary.’
