The Joy of Making a HUGE Mess!

Written by Kiah from our Wilderness Playgroup!

One of the great freedoms of playing outdoors is the opportunity for a child (and adults too!) to enjoy exploring and experimenting with materials and objects without the worry of offending others or making too big a mess.

So often playgroup parents say, ‘I’m thankful that I can bring my child here each week- we just can’t make this kind of mess at home!’

These photos celebrate the wonderful freedom the Wild Space offers to our playgroup children. In nature, children can be ‘mad scientists’ or ‘experimental artists’ for a whole morning without the fear of ruining the sofa or staining the carpet or upsetting other family members with their beautiful, crazy, educational messes!

“Stand aside for a while and leave room for learning, observe carefully what children do, and then, if you have understood well, perhaps teaching will be different from before.

Creativity becomes more visible when adults try to be more attentive to the cognitive processes of children than to the results they achieve in various fields of doing and understanding.”
