Such an amazing experience. We’ve been going to these messy play and sensory play sessions since 2018 with our first son and couldn’t wait to get our second son into them too. Such a fantastic learning experience through such fun interactive play. Nothing but smiles. Great for the parents too, to be able to relax and let the little ones explore and play (and get tuckered out too) always themed beautifully, staff so welcoming and helpful and great community of parents to be around. Thank you First Senses

We have been regulars at First Senses messy play sessions for a long time now and every single session has been an absolute joy. The amount of effort and attention to detail put into each tray creation by Emma and Kelsey is just incredible. They go above and beyond to ensure your little one has a great experience and are super friendly and approachable. All 3 of my kids have thoroughly enjoyed partaking in sessions. We recently hired First Senses for our youngest son’s first birthday and were so impressed with the session we had! All the kids had an absolute blast and Kelsey was a wonderful host; so creative with matching trays to our theme! Definitely come along and support this fantastic business.

First Senses Messy Play is the best experience for young kids! It’s all age appropriate and the kids just have so much fun. My daughter was the biggest fan of these sessions and always left with the biggest smile. Nap time was easy post these sessions! Cannot wait for my little man to start coming along in the next month! Emma and her team are amazing. So welcoming!
Caitlin – March 2022
Quality classes with brilliant, friendly staff. They work hard to make the classes fun every time, and ensure that everyone is enjoying themselves. They spend time getting to know the families that attend, and are always happy and friendly. My little one has been slowly gaining confidence with different sensory experiences thanks to these classes, and they’re just as excited as we are with her progress! Definitely would recommend!
Eden – March 2022
We had a ball at Messy Play. The stations are well thought out and very interactive. My son loved it. I left with some many great ideas for play at home. We will be back!
Taylor – March 2022
First Senses Messy Play is amazing!! Emma is a bundle of light and makes everyone feels so welcome! The set up of the messy trays are great and presented so creatively! My daughter loved rolling around in coloured noodles/rice! A great sensory experience and opportunity for her to get messy and have a great time exploring! Bonus that there’s no big clean up for us parents afterwards (apart from the kids!)!

Have loved bringing my three year old along to messy play and each time I have seen her confidently try new textures. Look forward to bringing my bubs along also when she is old enough. 😊
Kelsey – March 2022
We absolutely love First Senses! There is such a great variety of locations and activities on offer, no session is the same.
Jhane – February 2022
We had attended a sensory class at Hallett Cove and my son enjoyed exploring the sensory experiences set out, so we decided to book them in for his party. First Senses were friendly and responsive to their messages and accommodating to his party theme – Construction. The experiences set up were perfect for the children’s development and they all had lots of fun exploring and getting messy! Terri hosted our party, she was warm and welcoming to us all and the children. High recommend First Senses for their services!
Roxanne – March 2021
What a wonderful way to celebrate my son’s second birthday! Emma made what can be a hectic and stressful day, so smooth and fun. All the kids got so messy and had the best time! There was no set up, pack up or stress for me and hubby. Emma tailored the party to our Wiggles theme and it looked incredible! Highly highly recommend First Senses for birthday parties or events! Lots of my friends were blown away by it. A massive thank you to Emma who always responded to emails super quickly, was very punctual on the day, and left no trace of any messy play when she left. Such a professional set up x
Lynely – March 2021
I’ve used First Senses for two kids party, a 4 year old party and a 3 year old party. The kids loved the messy play! Having the opportunity for children to get messy and I didn’t have to clean it up was fantastic! Emma and her team discuss prior to the party what we would like and they come in, set it up, get involved with the children playing and then clean up afterwards. The children loved it! We loved it too! I highly recommend First Senses. Thank you so much for the service you provide!
Laura – March 2021
I took my 8 month old daughter to messy play in Hallett Cove and she had the best time! It was so fun watching her play around with all the different activities set up. It was nice to know that the items were baby friendly because she put most of it in her mouth. It was a great way for her to explore her senses and the bonus was not having to clean it all up. I look forward to bringing her to another one!

Tracy – February 2015:
Emma it’s great to see you have started your own business. As …you know we have known each other for over 5 years now and I started bringing my daughter to your massage classes when Phoenix was 6 months old in Wakefield. You always showed us a friendly, warm welcome and your ability with children especially the small ones was nothing short of fantastic. I felt safe in the knowledge that Phoenix was being looked after and your enthusiasm around your job was brill. I personally would recommend Emma’s classes and if I had another child I’d be there in a flash.
