Messy Monsters is a sensory and messy play program for babies, toddlers and children from 0 – 5 years.
Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your child’s senses. This includes touch, smell, taste, sight and sound.
What can your child gain from our sessions? Every single child that we meet is different, and each child will take away something different from our sessions. Some of the skills we have seen develop during the sessions are;
- Social skills:Â Turn taking, observing and learning from other children, communicating, teamwork and listening and responding to others
- Early literacy skills:Â Descriptive language acquisition- sticky, squashy, hard, smooth, blue, red, cold etc, names of objects, actions and verbs – pour, mix, shake, stir, drip etc, speaking and listening skills andÂ Early/emergent writing- making shapes in different materials.
- Early numeracy skills:Â Comparing volumes in containers, shape recognition, sorting different materials based on their properties, counting, recognising and naming colours, mathematical vocabulary- more, less, increase, decrease etc
- Science/ technology:Â Exploration and discovery, experimenting- hypothesising and evaluating, combining materials, exploring properties of materials, exploring properties of materials, changing properties and measuring, mixing, pouring
Do children feel like they are busy learning and developing all of these skills?Â Absolutely not! ‘Play is a child’s work‘Â (Jean Piaget)Â and children learn best when they feel safe, secure andÂ through play.
