Hi there, my name is Kristine Monaghan and I am the proud owner and Director of Mess Around Ltd. As a mother of two beautiful girls, I know the challenges of being a mum and also running a business. I started my Mess Around journey when I first took my eldest daughter to a session in 2011 in Stratford-upon-Avon. Having attended many babies and toddlers sessions, I was pleasantly surprised at how much effort was made at this one to make us feel so welcome. What I really loved about Mess Around was that children aged 6 months to 5 years old, could come along together and play in a relaxed and social environment with no pressure to do anything other than what made them happy.
I instantly fell in love with the Mess Around concept and when the opportunity arose in October 2012 to own a franchise in Stratford-upon-Avon I jumped at the chance. It was also at this time that I found out I was expecting our second child. Mess Around was such a great opportunity and I didn’t want to miss out so I decided to go for it and with support from Mess Around HQ, I worked throughout my pregnancy. A week after giving birth our family then relocated to the Isle of Skye. I transferred my franchise to a new area and launched Mess Around in September 2013 with over 100 children joining us for some messy fun from across the Island. The events were a huge hit!
Not long after I became the owner of Mess Around Ltd, which was a huge privilege. I have enjoyed many years welcoming new franchisees to regions in England, Scotland and Wales and bringing messy fun to thousands of children across the UK.
