What Our Families are Saying
I didnt know what to really expect so we gave it ago. I’m so glad we did. My son loved the experience so much.
Playing with natural blue goop and making natural slime.
I didnt relise how beneficial it is to see and allow your kids to just get messy. I dont engage in it at home and I’m going to change that and absolutely attend more of Maria’s sensory play sessions. Please have a go I think shes really onto something here guys.
