Messy Play

Unique Baby , Toddler and Pre-School Messy Play Sessions in Preston, Lancashire


Why do Messy Play?

Messy play can make an enormous contribution to babies and young children’s all round development. The word messy is often given negative meanings and so calling an important aspect of play “messy play” can and does lead it to being undervalued. Messy play is an important part of early years provision and has a valuable place in young children’s learning and development.

Go Create! have constructed messy play sessions for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. These messy play sessions are designed to allow children to learn through their senses. By providing the materials and by encouraging the children to ‘have a go’ parents can see first hand the pleasure children get from the materials and the possibilities for learning.

Go Create! Baby, Toddler and Pre-school Messy Play sessions have recently changed. We now accept babies from 5 months upto 4 years of age.
Each week we provide a different messy play theme. These include:
Rainbow Spaghetti Week
Painting Week
Volcano Week
Melon Week
Sensory Week
Pudding Week

The materials we use are all edible and baby safe. Older children are provided with different materials and activities

We hold messy sessions daily Tuesday-Fridays from 10am-11am and also on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1.30-2.30pm. All sessions must be pre-booked. You can pre-book sessions in blocks of 6 for £32. It’s not necessary to attend sessions concurrently. Please contact us for times. Alternatively you can book on a session by session basis for £7.oo per class.
It is important that we are informed at the time of booking should your child have any allergies you are aware of.


Your messy play session can now be paid for online using PayPal. When booking please include the day & time you wish to attend along with babies name, age and any allergy advice. You can put this info in the comments section on the PayPal page.


Group Bookings

Our messy play sessions are incredibly popular with both babies and parents alike. We aim to limit sessions to a maximum of 8-12 babies per session because any more than that and things can get a little crazy.
If you are part of a group (for example a baby group) and would like to attend we can offer afternoon and weekend sessions to accommodate. We require a minimum of 5 babies in the group to make this feasible. If you would like to make a booking please email us or contact us through Facebook.
