Messy Play enhances cognitive development (and much more) for all ages of children from babies upwards

by Nigel Harding

To mess about is to play with something and it is through play - which is part of the creative process (Duffy 1998) - that children learn and develop.

Messy play might have a bad name in your household but read up about the benefits for children from tiny babies upwards in this Nursery World article and you might change your mind.

Then go to Play Scotland’s free downloadable instruction booklet for some classic and new ideas and get going!
