Out & About | Messy Play in London

Today’s post is a great collection of the Messy Play classes we’ve found across London. There’s actually quite a few more than we first thought, so we hope this post is useful for you.

Little Learners London

Locations: Based in Bromley (West Wickham), and North & North West London (Kensal Rise). There are also franchises nationwide!

About: Suitable for ages 5 months to 5 years. Little Learners is a unique and fun approach to early writing for babies to pre-schoolers devised by a qualified teacher. We will help your child recognise and make marks and begin to form letters, numbers, shapes and patterns. We learn through play whilst strengthening core muscles and developing gross & fine motor skills.

What we like the sound of.. Little Learners has a large emphasis on learning, and mark making through having fun in a messy kind of way. They write a great blog as well. You book parties and event through Little Learners too.

About: You won’t find monotonous, weekly sessions at Mess Around – we are all about providing children opportunities to get messy and explore exciting new sensory activities.

Our parties run throughout the UK by our wonderful, dedicated franchise leaders, bringing you and your children larger-than-life unique messy fun. All you have to do is come along and MESS AROUND and leave the cleaning up to us!

Crafty Little Foxes

Locations: Chiswick, Brook Green & Fulham

About: Crafty Little Foxes is dedicated to delivering engaging, interactive & entertaining Art lessons to children aged 18m+. From painting with soap to sculpting with salt & flour there isn’t anything we won’t use to create unique works of art! At these very early stages of your child’s life we understand the importance of freedom of expression & multi sensory experiences. Not only will your child be encouraged to explore their creativity but you also have the added bonus of collecting works of Art along the way! You can treasure these keepsakes of your child’s amazing developments and achievements for years to come…

What we like the sound of.. Crafty Little Foxes sounds like the sort of class that you’ll make something each week. Perhaps less of a messy play and more of a creative class. All the same, it sounds fab!

Messy Toddlers

Locations: The Bright Emporium, Clapham

About:  There are 2 sessions of  Messy Toddlers 1-3 / 3-5. ‘Make a mess at our place not yours!’ Our first and most popular workshop now comes in two sessions – one younger, one older, we are not that strict on age so if a time works for you go for it,  just bear in mind one session is for the younger audience and one session is more advanced. BUT all the children will be working with paint, glue, scissors and special bits and bobs to which will enhance your little ones creations, and will all go home with something for the kitchen wall or a Grandparent!

What we like the sound of.. Another Saturday Morning session, the Bright Emporium is a wonderful space for children – there’s more to investigate whilst your there.
