Let’s Get Creative!

There is lots of research to show the developmental benefits of creative and messy play for baby, right from the early months when they become more aware of the world around them. Of course messy play can also be a huge amount of fun for your baby as they explore various textures, materials and sensations, but it is sometimes difficult to embrace the mess involved!

Roll up your sleeves, set up your Tidy Tot
and have some fun with your baby!

The great news is that the Tidy Tot Bib & Tray Kit also doubles up as the perfect platform for messy play! The coverall bib fully protects their clothing from paints and spills whilst the tray provides a secure, self-contained (and wipe clean!) surface, keeping any mess well away from the floor.

Learn Through Play

Experts agree that children learn primarily through play, but especially through exploratory and unstructured play. Play that incorporates rich, textural and sensorial experiences is known to support cognitive and language development and promotes the development of hand to eye coordination and fine motor skills which are essential for writing. Messy play focuses on exploring and experimenting with different materials which builds confidence and decision-making, allowing children to make their own discoveries.
