Messy play is growing time—with lots of chances to have unstructured and sensory-rich play all day long.
“Hello, dough! Squish Squash Squeeze.” Little ones build their gross- and fine-motor skills through play, touch, and—yes—making a big mess. With its bouncy, friendly approach, Messy Time encourages creativity, growth mindset, and messy play throughout the day, indoors and outdoors. “Welcome, rain! Splish Splash Dash.”
The newest addition to the popular Toddler Tools® series, Messy Time, shows joyful, messy play in different environments: with art materials; with mud, sand, and water; in the kitchen; in the garden; in the bathtub. Messy time is growing time, and messy play provides rich sensory experiences and unstructured play. At the back of the book, a section for parents and caregivers has tips for making the most of messy play, including clean-up time.
