Messy Play Babies and children learn and develop through play, but especially through unstructured, exploratory play. Although playing a game or playing with toys can be educational and fun; messy play focuses on exploring and experimenting without any end goal. Messy Play helps children in so many ways, be that to relax, express their feelings, experiment with different materials, learn about texture and develop hand-eye coordination or practice the skills of pouring, measuring and mixing. Messy Play groups take place every Tuesday 9:30-11:30am (term time only) at 45 Station Road, Redcar, TS10 1DT. To book a place, contact 01642 486850.
