But you’re not going to cook or bake,

Getting Started:

How often do you actually get permission to make a mess?

Mix ‘n’ Mess means what it says – just mix it up and make a mess!  Put all the ingredients in a bowl and use the spoons, scoops, tongs and measures to mess it around, lift it up, let it sprinkle out, feel it. What does it feel like?


Children will enjoy the texture and consistency of the ingredients. Watch out for textures they like and don’t like. Ask them why?
