Some researchers define "messy play" as play that emphasizes the active exploration of materials and their properties. But while it provides fantastic learning opportunities, it can also be challenging to facilitate. In this webinar, examine the specific learning that happens when infants and toddlers engage in messy play. Explore effective practices for managing the mess while also managing the classroom. Join Dawson Nichols, Ph.D., from the Institute for Learning & Brain Sciences, University of Washington, for this next webinar in the BabyTalks series.

  • The ways learning and development happen during messy play
