Easing into messy play for the reluctant child…
My son often prefers the non messy on the hands sensory play recipes. I always do the mixing. If your child is hesitant to dig right into the messy play ideas, give him a big spoon or scoop! You can also keep a bucket of water and towel close by to rinse hands every now and then. Help your child feel comfortable with messy sensory play. Always remember not to push the play if your child seems very uncomfortable and you can not find a way to make it more appealing.
My son has definitely enjoyed all of these ideas!
