Mess Around North Manchester

by Gaynor (follow)
We all know the fun and benefits of messy play for our little ones, but who, hand on heart, really looks forward to the cleaning up that comes with it?

Mess Around, North Manchester

Well luckily for us, Mess Around has just launched in North Manchester and allows families lots of the messy fun without any of the fuss!

From the moment we entered the venue my daughter was giddy with glee. We've attended a fair few sensory sessions with hands-on materials, but nothing with this much glorious mess.

Foamy fun
Messy Play at it's finest!

Everywhere we looked there were trays full of all sorts of gloop, glitter and games.

We played with coloured strands of spaghetti, mountains of foam, water balls, a slime chute and bubbles galore. I counted ten messy stations plus a larger painting area at the back. Nothing had been overlooked and there was something to cater for every age group.

There were clear safety labels advising whether a material is tastable, edible or not. My daughter was particularly fond of the ‘deconstructed party cakes’ (she takes after her Mum!).

It was just utterly brilliant. We danced, smiled and giggled our way through the whole hour and ended the party covered in foam!

Messy play and sensory play are activities that you can do at home yes, but to have someone do it all for you, and to have so many children mucking in together is a wonderful experience. Plus at £7.50 a ticket for an hour of messy fun, it's cheaper than buying all the materials yourself.

When you book, you will receive a detailed email outlining what to wear (definitely not your Sunday best – and that goes for the parents too!), plus information about any allergy / safety concerns.
