Smelly Messy Play

We all love a bit of messy play! This messy play not only engages our sense of touch but also our sense of smell and sometimes even our sense of taste.

We’ve created some simple ideas to get you thinking about ways you can use household ingredients to get messy, be creative and have a great time.

If you have a big group, you might want to try all of the ideas we’ve suggested below together. Alternatively, if you’re working with a small group you might just try one or two at a time so you can have fun exploring and playing together.
