Mess Around Nottingham offers fabulous messy play sessions and multi-sensory experiences for babies aged six months (or sitting unaided) to 5 years old.  Their 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 the famous painting wall, the little ones can squelch, pour, mix and splat until their hearts are content. All you have to do is come along and MESS AROUND and leave the cleaning up to them!  Messy play contributes enormously to the development of a child’s cognitive and creative abilities. It allows a child to explore their senses by providing the opportunity to pour, mix, squeeze and squelch materials not normally available to them. Also, not having to produce something in particular, leaves a child free to explore all sorts of possibilities. It taps into a child’s curiosity about the world around them and feeds their irresistible urge to try new things out and experiment in a safe and relaxed environment.
