Hello! Thanks for visiting!

Hi there, my name is Katrina and I am your Leader for Bedfordshire and North Bucks.

I run messy play sessions, events and birthday parties in the area.

A bit about me:

  • I have a little boy called Thomas who has just turned three
  • I’ve been married to my weekend wingman, David since 2012
  • We live in good old Milton Keynes
  • When I’m not getting messy, I love playing netball and am chairperson of our local league.

I began my Mess Around adventure back in 2016 when Thomas was just 6 months old. I didn’t want to go back to a 9 to 5 job and I wanted to be there to see all those milestones for myself. I’m so lucky that I’ve been able to do that – and have lots of messy fun too!

We took Thomas to his first Mess Around event when he was just 5 months old and even though he was a bit too little to get fully stuck in, he kicked around in cereal and played with the sand. What I loved about my very first Mess Around experience was that everyone was getting so stuck in!  Mums, Dads, Aunties, Uncles and Grandparents were all getting as messy as the children they came with!  It was fab seeing children just play and have fun and just be children.

No matter the age or ability of your children, there is always was something for everyone to play with, from coloured rice to shaving foam, from jelly to cloud dough! What I love about our events is that it’s completely child lead. Your child can go at a pace they feel comfortable and explore new sensory activities without any pressure to create anything. There is no right or wrong way to ‘do’ a Mess Around session – and that is something I love.

Sessions are friendly, relaxed and informal. They are great for meeting other parents or meeting up with friends. So, come along, Mess Around and leave the cleaning up to us!

I look forward to meeting you at one of our Mess Around events soon.
