Messy play is a very tactile activity and an important one for all children, it is open ended and sensory and often leads to marvellous language and descriptive vocabulary.
We have access to many sources of reference where we can print out articles or bullet points that may be of use to parents.
Outside play is very important for young children and has so many benefits, fresh air, space, opportunity to take risks, exploring and investigating. A chance to observe wild life, flora and fauna, learn cycles of growth, study beetles, worms, how caterpillars change to butterflies. And simply time to use their muscles and limbs and learn the effect that being active has on their wellbeing.
