messy play classes

Attending a messy monkeys session is a great way for your child to explore freely and creatively, encountering different materials and textures in a relaxed environment.  Free and creative play is an essential part of a child’s learning process, messy monkeys  classes focus on activities you wouldn’t normally encourage at home to inspire curiosity…  and we clean up the mess so your walls, carpets and sofas are safe from grubby little paws!

Places at the Baby Sessions are limited allowing for a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere in which to start having some messy fun with your baby. Each session allows your child to get hands (and feet) on with different gloops and goos, explore how things work with the messy tools and have a go at creating something special to take home.
  • Age: From 6 months old
  • Class Size: 16
Toddler Sessions are less structured to allow older monkeys the freedom and autonomy in their choice of Messy Play. Children have space to explore each activity at their own pace in a (relatively!) calm, relaxed environment, whilst encouraging interaction with their new friends. Create fantastic messy masterpieces to treasure within our imaginatively planned themes!
  • Age: From 12 Months old
  • Class Size: 18
