Messy Monday: Coffee Play

Tags: messy monday, messy play, sensory

Section: Sensory

Playing with coffee granules is an interesting sensory activity as it offers both texture and a strong smell! It can be good pouring and scooping or can make 'mud' for small world characters.

What you need:

  • a couple of jars of value instant coffee granules (ours cost 47p from Tesco!)
  • a tub for play



  • water to explore how the coffee changes

  • plastic animals/people/dinosaurs for imaginative small world play

  • scoops, plastic cups, small pots for pouring and scooping
