If you are considering attending a Get Messy class with your baby or toddler then take a look at this fab review from rainycitykids.com.This is a great website and well worth following for great tips and info on family days out and what is going on in and around Manchester.
Get Messy is a year old and we are loving how our Get Messy Buddies are growing in confidence in the messy play elements. The benefits of messy play are overwhelming for children:
Babies and children learn and develop through play, but especially through unstructured, exploratory play which is exactly what you have at a Get Messy Class. Messy play focuses on exploring and experimenting with different materials without any end goal such as to build or make something. This allows young children to make their own discoveries using their senses, curiosity and knowledge. There is no right or wrong. This means that any child can participate, whatever their ability, and benefit from it. It’s also a very sociable activity, but one that doesn’t rely on words. Children can play together and share their discoveries without needing to explain things verbally. However, it can also be a way of encouraging speech, for example by describing sensations, textures etc., and helping your child build their vocabulary.
Here are some more reviews of our Get Messy class from parents who have attended recently:
"I brought my 3 year old and 8 month old to a taster session today and we will definitely be back for the half-term. It's a very friendly session with lots for everyone to explore. It's rare to find something that babies and toddlers can get equal enjoyment out of but my two both loved it - as we got in the car to go home my daughter asked if we could come back this afternoon! It's lovely to be given coffee and cake as well. All in all, great - I'd definitely recommend it!" 28/4/17
"Came for this first time today me and Ethan had so much fun! Everyone so welcoming ! We will definitely be coming regularly ! Xx" 16/5/17
