Timing The session will run with a quick welcome and explanation of each messy station, so please hold your children back until the start time when you get the GO!!! Then free play to discover all the stations, followed by mat time at the end, and a quick story while everyone gets cleaned up.
Clothing – There will be some messy smocks available, and a limited number of coveralls for the younger ones to try out. These are optional, please wear old clothes that you and your child don’t mind getting messy in, it might also be wise to bring a change of clothes and a towel.
Shoes – If possible wear gumboots or crocs or similar to help with slip prevention, and prevent paint / slime etc marking shoes. Bare feet is another option, just be careful with slippery surfaces. Please help to discourage running for safety reasons.

Sometimes it takes a few sessions to really get into it and make the most of the benefits of messy play. So don’t worry if your child is hesitant at first.
