What is The Mess Box?

The Mess Box is full of exciting creative ideas

Brought to you from the creative and excitable team at Mess Around!

As a leading provider of multi-sensory, messy play experiences in over 200 locations across the UK, Mess Around brought the wonder of messy play to over 100,000 children last two year with sell-out sessions across the country.

And now you can enjoy the excitement and fun in your own home with the Mess Box. Delivered directly to your door, the Mess Box is crammed full of messy activities and materials, creative ideas, step-by-step guides, recipes, props, surprises and so much more.

We have fantastic themed Mess Boxes to explore including our Rumble in the Jungle through to The Very Messy Caterpillar Mess Boxes. The kids love it and so do the parents.

This year we have launched a range of new Mess Boxes which will cater for children aged 6 months – 3 years so they can join the messy fun too at home.
