Messy Hands Drop-In
July 12 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 pm
An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Friday, repeating until July 12, 2019
It’s time to get our hands dirty! Children ages 2 to 5 are invited to explore their senses, discover textures and materials, and get artsy! Don’t be surprised if clothes get dirty.

-We trust children to take risks, test their motor-skills, concentration, and collaboration.
-What’s important is the children’s experience, not the creation of a finished.
-There are no step-by-step instructions and no right or wrong ways to use the materials, tools and objects.
-Children are free to move between stations as they please.
-Materials might move with them, and that’s okay!
-When things get colourful, sticky, wet or gritty, we laugh and keep playing!
-It’s our job as parents and caregivers to get out of our comfort zone and let mess happen.Wiping down hands during playtime is not necessary.
-When playtime is over, everyone is involved in the clean-up process: gathering supplies, sweeping the floors, wiping down surfaces and washing our hands.
