Messy Play

Messy Play

Every last Saturday of the month (starting February) from 9am-12 we will host a messy play party. Parents are more than welcome though we are happy for you to leave your child with us, siblings/friends are welcome up to the age of 8 at R50 per extra child that don’t attend Tilly’s Nest. Booking is required.

Messy play contributes enormously to the development of a child’s cognitive and creative abilities. It allows a child to explore their senses by providing the opportunity to pour, mix, squeeze and squelch materials not normally available to them. Also, not having to produce something in particular, leaves a childfree to explore all sorts of possibilities. It taps into a child’s curiosity about the world around them and feeds their irresistible urge to try new things out and experiment.

In short, the benefits that messy play bring to a child’s development are extensive.
