Children are active learners and learn through play. Play makes learning exciting and interesting. It ensures that children remember what they learn. Messy play is particularly attractive because it stimulates many of children’s senses at once. Infants and toddlers may simply explore the materials and enjoy textures and smells. This is what the children did during this particular project. They all enjoyed playing with bags filled with different colored paints. Some of the bags were even filled with paint and sand, or paint and flour. The children all had different ways of experiencing the bags. They did things like squishing, poking, tasting, and even attempting to open the bags! In all the project was a sensory and motor skill assessment that the children enjoyed indulging in.
