Messy Play Parties!

Looking for a birthday party that's totally unique? Or new inspiration for your playgroup? Let us bring the Messy Play to you! Messy Play parties are custom created to match whatever theme and ideas you may have, for groups of 5-20 children under age 10.

Parties include 3-4 activities designed around a theme that is chosen by you. We can make the activities more simple for younger toddlers or more complex for older children. Hands on Parenting provides all the materials necessary, plus materials for set up and clean up. Everything we use is completely washable, and parties can be hosted indoors or outdoors. Don't think you have space in your home? Find a local park or playground nearby! We are based in the San Francisco Bay Area and will travel to parties within 100 miles (further for special requests).

Sample parties:

Dinosaur Dig:

Construction/Transportation Themed:

Ocean Themed:

Caterpillars & Butterflies:

What do I need to provide or tell the other parents in advance?

What if I don't live within your travel distance?
