    Messy Maths offers a rich resource of ideas that will inspire you to tap into the endless supply of patterns, textures, colours and quantities of the outdoors and deepen children's understanding of maths through hands-on experience.

Messy Maths reimagines the outdoor space through a mathematical lens, providing a treasure trove of suggestions to empower you to blend outdoor learning into your teaching practice. It is not a "how to" guide, but rather an easy-to-use reference book replete with ready-to-use games and open-ended ideas designed to help children become confident and skilled in thinking about, using and exploring abstract mathematical concepts as all they play outside.
