Play Matters Australia wants to see the messy play movement grow. We're encouraging groups and organisations to register their own Messy Play Matters event on our website.

If you register your event it will be promoted online and you'll receive your very own digital play kit with lots of activities and ideas to help you celebrate.

Please excuse the mess, children are making memories.
