The children have shown an interest in dinosaurs so we decided to explore more by creating our very own dinosaur swamp

The dinosaurs in Worcester Preschool are well and truly extinct after this messy swamp activity!
Messy play is an engaging sensory experience for the children, as they are free to explore the changing textures, temperatures, colours and smells as they mix, squidge, splosh and splash to their hearts’ content! (And they learned lots about dinosaurs too!)
