Absolutely! Messy play allows children to have an exciting tactile and sensory experience that inspires their curiosity, allows them to explore the world around them and enhances their learning, language, and creativity.
Help! My little one doesn’t want to participate in messy play!
Everyone is different and learns at their own pace. Sometimes being in a new environment can be over stimulating and overwhelming. Give your baby and toddler sometime to adjust to their new environment and introduce the activities at our messy sessions slowly so that they can become comfortable with their surroundings.
Can my little one consume any of the products/materials provided at the messy sessions?
Although we do our best to provide materials and items that are safe and non-toxic for your little one to explore their senses, we recommend that they do not consume any materials/items provided and should be supervised when interacting with any materials or items that could cause harm or an allergic reaction.
What do I need to bring along to our messy session?
We recommend dressing your baby or toddler in appropriate clothing for messy play, as clothing items will get dirty and possibly stained. Please also bring a towel, baby wipes and an extra change of clothes for your little one. We also recommend that parents wear comfortable clothing as they will be getting messy during our sessions.
My baby or toddler has a condition such as an allergy or special diet requirement, should I inform The Messy Patch?
Yes, please confirm if your little one has any allergies or special diet requirements prior to them starting our messy fun as we sometimes use products such as yoghurt.
