messy play perth


Laura - Founder of Made to be Messy

Made to be Messy was born in 2020 out of a love for a hands-on, open ended play philosophy where your child can learn and develop at their own pace and in their own time with activities that inspire curious thinking and creativity .

With a lifelong love of working with children, two children of my own, previous experience working in childcare, currently completing my Bachelor in Early Childhood Education and being actively involved in our community playgroup, I found a love for messy and sensory play experiences and the opportunity they give all children to explore, learn and discover.

I am all about creating a fun and safe environment for you and your little ones to explore. I hold a current Working with Children's Card, National Police Clearance and First Aid accreditation as well as being fully insured.

I cannot wait to welcome you to one of our sessions!



Multi-sensory play is incredibly beneficial to early childhood development.

It gives children the opportunity to practice and refine their fine and gross motor skills and supports cognitive development and thinking.

The possibilities for development of language and communication are enhanced by sensory play. Children can build social and emotional awareness which also encourages a positive attitude towards new experiences.

Messy play enables risk taking and experimenting in a safe environment and teaches cause and effect. Children are free to explore at their own pace and in their own style. There is no right or wrong way to play and as such messy play is all inclusive.
