Messy Play Art and Craft Sessions

Encouraging curiosity



For pre-School Children from 1 year - 5 years


"Play is the highest form of research." Albert Einstein


Our popular Messy Play sessions currently run on a Monday, Thursday and Friday morning from 10-11am and every Thursday afternoon 2-3pm. They are a celebration of creativity, starting and ending with our 'You are Special' song.


Sessions cost £6 each or £28 for six sessions. Uniquely for children's activities in Edinburgh, parents can spend their block booking whenever pleases them. Six consecutive weeks, once a fortnight, once every two months for a year...it's up to you! Your first taster session is FREE if you decide to book for a block of six after the first session.


The aim of our session is to help develop self-awareness, creative expression, fine motor skills, hand-eye co-ordination and, most importantly, to have lots and lots of messy fun!


Sessions include a range of art and craft activities, including paper crafts, painting, stamping, sticking and each week we have a different fabulous theme to inspire the imagination!


Messy play is recognised by Play Scotland as a key part of a young child's learning. Our activities encourage children to grasp new concepts by engaging with shapes, materials, sounds and feelings in new ways.


We include lots of activities that parents may not feel comfortable with doing in the home (such as digging in sand, squirting shaving cream and splashing with water). By taking part in Messy Play at Honey Pot, children benefit from the freedom of making creative mess and we remove the stress and the cleaning away from Mum and Dad!


You can either book a block or come for individual days - whatever suits you best.


Things will get messy! NOTE: Whilst we do use paints which are 'washable', some paints may stain. Old clothes are recommended for everyone!


These sessions have been extended by popular demand, so to avoid disappointment booking is highly recommended – call 0131-333-6348


Messy Play is also one of our Party options.
