Lalo and Nippi’s Messy Play

Messy play is extremely important for a baby/child’s development. It provides them with an exciting tactile and sensory experience that inspires their curiosity, allows them to explore the world around them and enhances their learning, language skills and creativity. Many studies have shown that messy play is one of the best ways for our child/ren to learn and develop. At Lalo and Nippi’s we encourage everyone, yes including parents/guardians to engage in messy and sensory play as much as possible as the many benefits are so worth it. Plus, we clean up all the mess after!  Come and get messy every Wednesdays at 10 am @Westbourne Grove Church W11 2RW.
