Messy play is at the heart of the early years curriculum, supporting creativity and imagination, and giving children opportunities to experiment with tactile materials. This book offers 50 ideas for using natural resources, simple household items and recycled resources for low cost inspiration.
Practitioners and teachers in the early years are always looking for new ideas for messy and `hands-on' play, and this book will give children many opportunities for exploration and investigation through sensory play.
