Who is Mess About for?

We run sessions for babies from 6 months to 18 months and toddlers from 18 months to 3 years, accompanied by an adult (mum, dad, nanny or bampy – anyone who doesn’t mind a good old mess about). We can also tailor birthday parties for Mess Meisters up to 5 years.

How did Mess About come about?

Mess About was dreamed up by us, Charlotte and Stella, whilst on maternity leave with our youngest children. Thinking about how much our older children had enjoyed just getting messy, rather than doing product-led crafts, left us wondering why there were no groups locally where children could do just that – enjoy getting messy without mum or dad having to wonder how to transport the latest piece of toddler art home without getting paint all over the car. And bam! In an explosion of glitter, puffy paint and multi coloured spaghetti, Mess About was born.

What do I need to bring?

We provide all the messy and sensory fun, as well as warm water, bubbles and flannels for bath time. We do ask that you bring a towel and don’t wear your best clothes. Where possible, all of our mess is washable, but it is always better to be safe than sorry with your favourite cashmere sweater!

My child has allergies, can we still come?

Most of our mess is edible (although you wouldn’t want it for dinner!), as such, it may contain allergens. If your child suffers from allergies, please contact us before booking and we will do our best to accommodate any special requirements.
