Messy & Creative Play

Messy play allows children to create, build, develop their imaginations, explore textures, use their senses and it’s great fun too! Messy Play is a great way to learn how to make choices and is also great for developing small hand muscles.

Our Messy and Creative Play booklets are full of ideas and are our most popular resources.

We would love to see pictures of your mess and creations! Send them to

Disclaimer: Play Scotland would suggest that appropriate supervision is in place for any young children using our messy play recipes, and that they avoid consumption!
