Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Muck, Mess and Mixtures

Let’s get messy! Muck and mess is good! In fact, it’s mega-marvellous!

Play with liquids, squish some dough and check out the slushiest and mushiest foods.

Pour, mix, stir and splat! How does it feel to get your hands covered in goo? Make wobbly jelly and draw with wibbly clay.
