HOT: The Messy Shed, Frankston

The Messy Shed is a creative and sensory play experience in Frankston. It is relocated from its previous locations in Mornington and next to The Hungry Peacock in Tyabb.

The Messy Shed is every parent and child’s come true. During each 45-minute session kids have fun playing with paint, mud, water and craft materials – and parents relax knowing that they don’t have to clean up!

Every week is a different theme. For our visit it is all about Creepy Crawlies, so bugs abound.

Having said that, Baby 2.0 is most fascinated by the glass-cleaning station and the pegboard with ball run.

I particularly like the magnetic wall where various pipes can be stuck together to create a different sort of ball run experience.

Kids can also get messy searching for bugs, sifting through a sensory play table based on The Hungry Caterpillar or just go wild with the paint wall.

The real highlight of the morning is walking away from all the paint and dirt and foam, knowing that Baby 2.0 has had fun but I don’t have to clean up.
