Messy play with Messy Little Munchkins’ term time classes

Looking for some ideas for time well spent with your tiny tot, toddler, or preschooler this term? The Messy Little Munchkins term-time classes are a dead set winner for young children and parents alike.

Each week, children will experience different types of enriching messy play led by the lovely Messy Little Munchkins educators. During a typical class, they’ll get to dabble with crafts, play dough, paint, and messy play at each of the different play stations, discover and learn in the nature corner, and engage in sensory experiences with a range of tactile materials that are themed to their interests. Then if that’s not enough, they’re encouraged to freely explore cubby houses and a whole heap of toys in the imaginative play area!

Messy Little Munchkins classes cater to children aged from three months up to five years and are organised according to age group:

Mini Munchkins Classes are suitable for children from 3 to 12 months and are designed to ignite the minds and senses of your babies. They’ll start with playful interaction with music, sounds, and sights before giving them time to explore the world of messy sensory play.

Moving Munchkins Classes are suitable for children from 1 to 3 years old and involve fun interactive singing, dancing, and play, followed by getting messy. There’ll be different stations set up featuring play dough, painting, and colourful rice.

All-Age Munchkins Classes are classes for children aged 1 to 5, so are perfect if you have two or more kids in this age group. Kids will take part in sensory activities that will include everything from craft activities and messy sensory play, to a world of fun and unstructured child-led play.

We love it when we find a kids’ class that’s an awesome experience for parents too. At Messy Little Munchkins, you’ll not only get a kick out of seeing your young children in their sensory element, but you’ll get to meet a heap of other Central Coast families who’ll very likely become lifelong friends. PLUS, it’s definitely worth mentioning that when you attend a Messy Little Munchkins class with your child, you’ll have the chance to enjoy a well-deserved coffee delivered from the cafe next door too!

When: Classes are held on weekdays, Monday – Friday. See the timetable here.
Where: Messy Little Munchkins is located inside the Niagara Park Shopping Centre, 16 Washington Avenue, Niagara Park.
