Messy play is important for young children. All types of play are essential for children’s development and early learning. Play can help children to develop and improve their gross and fine motor skills, co-ordination, and concentration. They also will learn how to work cooperatively by using all their senses.
This week, Nursery students enjoyed messy play with rice and nuts. They had to find numbers in the sensory bin, said the number names and connected counting to cardinality.
