Sensory experience is crucial for children of a young age; it helps develop their fine motor skills, builds confidence and independence, as well as encouraging creativity and imagination.

When we say Messy, we mean Messy!

Here at Happy Mess, we strive to provide the sensory experience to your child in a fun and hands on environment.

Weekly Sessions

Each session runs for one hour and includes a different theme every week, with a variety of messy and sensory activities to ensure your child never loses interest and continues to dig deeper into their imagination.
Parent participation is encouraged, and it is important to remember that your reaction will influence your child’s, so come with an open mind and be prepared to get messy!
Our sessions are designed to give your child the opportunity to try different things, and it may take a few sessions for them to get comfortable with messy play, but the benefits are worth it.
What to wear?
Although we will provide art smocks for your child to wear if they wish, we do suggest that you both wear old clothes to the sessions and a spare outfit for the ride home is also advisable.
All sensory material used is non-toxic and taste safe.

Have a Messy Party

Happy Mess comes to you!
We provide all of the sensory material for your child’s party and clean up the mess afterwards so you can have a little party of your own, stress free! We offer a range of sensory and artistic options for the children and work with you to design the perfect party for your child with a wide range of themes and activities.
Parties can be held at your place, we suggest using a backyard or a garage as it could get very messy, school halls, community halls or we can help you find a location.
Parties can be booked in the morning or afternoon. Simply place a booking and we'll confirm our availability.
