Sensory play is messy.
It means water, paint, and glue on the floor or sand tracked through the classroom. However, that is the adults’ problem, not the children’s!
Examine your own tolerance for messiness, and weigh it against the learning opportunities for children. Remember that cleaning up sensory-material messes provides opportunities for creative problem-solving with materials. Enlist the children’s ideas both for how to keep messes to a minimum and how to clean up messes when they do occur.
