Messy Play helps babies and toddlers explore their developing senses and their blossoming creativity in a fun and safe environment.
Attending a Messy Monkeys session is a great way for your child to explore different materials and textures, learn about cause and effect and to develop motor and language skills. Free and creative play is an essential part of a child’s learning process, assisting in the understanding of Science and Maths and well as developing talent in Arts and Crafts.
Messy Play is a fabulous way of allowing young children to gain confidence in their own imagination. At Messy Monkeys we focus on the process and not the product allowing children the freedom to create their own masterpieces to take home.
Sessions with Messy Monkeys help to focus that seemingly endless energy and young children learn social skills through sharing tools and taking turns.
Messy Play focuses on activities you wouldn’t normally encourage at home…we clean up the mess so your walls, carpets and sofas are safe from Messy Monkey paws!
Baby Messy Play Sessions
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.
Young children explore not only with their hands but with their mouths so we make sure that everything we use is non toxic. At the end of each session we have warm soapy water to get your little monkey clean again – we ask that you bring a towel and a spare change of clothes for your baby each week. We advise you wear old clothes too – it does get very messy!
“Messy Monkeys is doing what I hoped; giving my baby the chance to get messy without having to mess my house, mixing with other children and experiencing different activities which I wouldn’t have time to set up.”
What better way to help your baby learn about the world around them than by encouraging them to be a Messy Monkey!
Toddler Messy Play Sessions
Once your little monkey is steady on their feet they are welcome at our Toddler Sessions which are less structured to allow freedom and autonomy in their choice of Messy Play.
We limit the group to 20 toddlers per session, allowing children the space to explore each activity at their own pace in a (relatively!) calm, relaxed environment, whilst encouraging interaction with their new friends. Each week your child can have fun with colours, water, sand and play-dough and explore themed gloops and goos, also creating something special to take home.
At the end of each session we have warm soapy water for your little monkeys to get clean again – we ask that you bring a towel and a spare change of clothes each week for your child. We advise you wear old clothes too – it does get very messy!
“Messy Monkeys has been absolutely great, really loved the laid back approach, felt really welcome and able to enjoy mess with my son”
