Enjoy a messy activity in KidsTown! Activities are set up at the blue tables and involve exploring materials by using your sense of sight, hearing, touch, and even smell. Activities range from playing with home-made playdough to exploring the states of matter with oobleck.

Messy experiences are great for developing sense recognition and developing vocabulary to talk about what things feel like. Ask your little one leading questions during these activities, like “What does it feel like? Is it slippery? Soft? Rough?” or “Does it have a smell?”. The only sense we doesn’t want you to use is your sense of taste.

These activities are best for guests age 7 and younger when accompanied by an adult.
