artsdepot Messy Play
Our ever-popular class for early years and their parents / carers encourages creative play and exploration. In our mess-friendly art space, little ones are introduced to explore art and creativity through colour, texture and play with no worries about mess and clearing up!
What is Messy Play?
• Messy Play is a 45-minute session where children are encouraged to explore a wide variety of materials through play.
• Sometimes we have large group activities led by the workshop leader, but most of the time, the children can follow their own interests in their own time.
• It’s a session of activities that you wouldn’t dare do at home.
• It is NOT a session where we make mess for the sake of it, its just we don’t mind that children get messy in their creative process.

How can I prepare for Messy Play?
• Your child is best off in old clothes that you don’t care about getting stained. A body suit is good, or a sleep suit with the toes cut out so that your little one doesn’t slip.
• The Art Room can get quite hot; so don’t overdress your little ones.
• Bring a towel and perhaps a wet flannel to clean up afterwards.
• Don’t forget your camera! (Video camera is not permitted).
• Bring a change of clothes.
• The toilets are directly opposite the Art Space, so you can wipe your little ones down afterwards.
