Messy Time Magic focuses on creative play and 'make and do' activities that are featured during Messy Time in the TV programme. Unlike traditional 'Art Pack' software, the CD-ROM's activities allow children to experience, through their computer, some of the messier moments of the show they can't do in the home. Children are guaranteed to have lots of fun!
These fun and educational activities include:
Jungle Maker: Make a jungle collage and match the sounds to the animals, then watch the whole scene animate and even turn to night!
Colourful windows: Judy is admiring stained glass windows. Make pictures and shapes for the Tweenies' (its many windows in various houses) then see the lovely patterns as the light shines through.
Baking: Learn to make bread with special Tweenie ingredients and you might end up with some messy and funny results!
Dot to Dot: Join up the dots on the little pictures and watch as the whole scene comes to life when you've finished.
Recycling: Put things in the recycling machine and see what comes out! Can you make the things the Tweenies ask for out of the old junk?
All these activities play differently depending on which Tweenie you choose to be your playmate. A video clip from the TV programme giving background to the task in hand precedes each task. There is also a gallery for your creations and a series of activities to do away from the computer.
