Messy Little IMPS is a creative messy play class for babies and toddlers from 6 months (or sitting). Created and led by a primary school teacher, at Messy Little IMPS babies learn using all their senses. Little toes, fingers, feet and hands experience a range of colours and textures as babies have fun exploring the weekly learning adventure which is linked each week to a story theme. We know that babies love to experience everything through their mouths so our activities are often created from edible resources.

A creative messy play and baby craft class linked to s weekly story theme where little hands and toes can explore and investigate. Lots of fun and mess then leave the clearing up to us! A totally different type of baby and toddler class. Each week we start the class with singing, action and generally warm up our bodies ready for messy play. The main messy play time is different each week and is designed around a weekly theme which is linked to our weekly story. During messy play time there is always a craft activity so that children can make and take away a treasured creation. At the end of the class the 'story bubbles' indicate that it is time to sit down, have a snack (not included) and share a story before we sing our goodbye song and head home. There are always lots of smiles and masses of mess, but the best bit is that you can let us clear it all up!
