Messy Play for Toddlers & Preschoolers

Robin of Messy Play Kits ( is bringing sensory play to Craftiful! Messy Play (TM) is a hands-on sensory experience for toddlers and preschoolers! Each week we will explore different materials, such as oobleck, slime, colored rice, gelatin, or oatmeal. We'll paint, dig, dump, smear, get messy, and have fun! Let us clean up the mess for you! 

***While all materials are washable (and nontoxic), please make sure to dress both you and your toddler in clothing that can get messy, or bring a change or clothes.***
