Come along and play at one of our fabulous Mess Around Messy Play Sessions. We provide multi sensory, messy play experiences for babies aged 6 months (or sitting unaided) to 5 years old. Our sessions are special as everyone is welcome to join in including older siblings up to the age of 10, who can participate in the Big Kids Create and Make Corner at our week end and school holiday sessions. With lots of activities to explore, including our famous painting wall, the little ones can squelch, pour, mix and splat until their hearts are content.

My 8 month old and I had a fantastic time at the Spooktackular Mess Around event last week. Lots of different activities to keep my son entertained and the rest of the children there were having lots of fun. Alanna is welcoming, enthusiastic and spends her time interacting with the children and making sure everyone is enjoying themselves. We especially enjoyed the snow party at the end....everyone was on their feet dancing!! I thought very good value for money, it's obvious there's alot of preparation and planning involved in getting everything ready. The play areas were all themed and looked fantastic. It was almost a shame to mess it all up!! We will definately be returning to an event in the future and would recommend 😊

We had a fantastic time at our first Mess Around session, the Spooktacular event. Myself and my husband got involved with our children, we all had so much fun! Alanna was amazing, she was very informative and very friendly. I loved that Alanna took photos (only if you opt in) of the children, so me and my husband were able to get involved in all the mess and gloop, then we got some photos off the Facebook page. (We did take some ourselves but we didn’t have to keep washing hands etc) The messy play trays/activities were amazing, Alanna had put so much effort in to them. The sessions are very reasonably priced and it’s a great way to let your children have fun without worrying about the mess. We are looking forward to the next event in November and any further events.
