FAQs

Q: Do I stay at Splodge 'n' Splat Messy Play sessions with my child/ren?

Yes, you must remain with your child/ren for the duration of the session.  Your child/ren will be your responsibility at all times while they are attending.

Q: How long do the sessions last?

Each session runs for one hour.  This includes 50 minutes play for the children, with a 10 minute 'clean up time' at the end, to make sure your little one is ready to face the outside world once more! 

Q: What should I bring to the session?

A change of clothes for each child, a towel and wipes.  A plastic carrier bag is useful for wet/messy clothes.  Please ensure you dress both your child/ren and yourself in clothing that you don't mind getting marked or stained.  Splodge 'n' Splat Messy Play accepts no responsibility for personal belongings at the session.

Q: How do I know if my child will like messy play?

The only way to find out is to come and try a session!  A social environment can encourage even the most shy child to join in.  

Q: Will your activities at the sessions always be the same?

Activities at the sessions will be rotated around a central core of favourites, with new ideas added all the time, so there should be a variation each time you attend.

Q: I'd like to take photos of my child at the session - can I do this?

You are more than welcome to photograph your child at the sessions.  However, please be aware of other parents' wishes - they may not want their child to appear in photographs.  Do always check with parents first.

Q: I need to cancel my booking - will I get a refund?

Unfortunately, because of costs to us for hiring the venue, materials and set up time, refunds for cancellation are not possible.  If a session is postponed by Splodge 'n' Splat Messy Play, due to unforeseen circumstances, a replacement session will be offered. Where this is not possible, refunds will be given.
