This practical hands-on session will explore different ideas for imaginative messy play. We will discuss how inexpensive resources and materials can be adapted for enticing age-appropriate, learning opportunities. Links will be made to good story books and how to use these for inspiring new activities. Come prepared to play!
In this course participants will:
- Take part in setting up imaginative, messy play experiences
- Discuss how to extend learning and plan for messy play both indoors and out
- Be refreshed and excited by new ideas and reminded of ‘old faithfuls’ – familiar messy play materials with suggestions of different ways to use them
- Make links to the revised Early Years Foundation Stage, the characteristics of effective learning, and consider what young children are learning through this type of play.
