If you have a nursery/preschool fun day, charity fundraiser or any other event coming up and you want to offer something a bit different, please consider us to provide some sensory and messy play to keep the children entertained.

We can theme any activities or crafts we provide and pride ourselves on being approachable and professional at any event we attend.

Our activities can be as messy or mess-free as you like. Please contact me to discuss how we can help you.

Tenterden Garden Centre – The very lovely Sensory Sensations attended two of our summer events at the Garden Centre this year and we are very glad they did! Not only was Katie organised, but she was professional and friendly too. The toddlers and babies loved her and the bright colours, noises and general freedom to make as much mess as they liked – with trays that included jelly, shaving foam and wet look balls we are not surprised Sensory Sensations were such a huge hit. We will be asking Katie and her team to return next year.

Sugarplum Princesses Party Entertainment: Sensory sensations are SENSATIONAL!!! We invited this fantastic company to our event at Westenhanger castle this Easter and they provided the most beautiful set up for the little ones, i highly recommend this very clever and most friendly lady to events and parties. I cant wait to work with her again. The sweetest things i have ever seen. I can’t thank you enough! A************

Homestart Ashford & District: We would highly recommend Sensory Sensations, Katie came and delivered a session to our Chill with Dad group.  All the group had a great time. Katie had thought of great craft activities for the older children of photo frames and Super Hero cards. 0-8 age range is a difficult age to cover and Katie did this with ease.  We will look at using Sensory Sensations in the future.

Vicki Lou’s Playroom: I would just like to say how amazing Sensory Sensations Thomas the tank messy play parties are .I invited Katie along to my parent and toddler class last year (Vicki lou’s playroom) as i wanted to introduce a messy play session to the playroom to widen the children’s learning through play experiences to keep in line with the early years play principles .The class was totally amazing!! Even better then what I could ever imagined it to be .It was defiantly one big party !! Katie delivered a wide variety of sensory , messy and non messy play to the class giving the children plenty of choice and different sensory experiences. We had shaving foam trays to water beads to painting with trains to musical instruments a dark den and so much more! The class was buzzing with excitement !! The parents were amazed at the high standards that Katie delivered. As a playworker myself I would rate Katie outstanding. I recommend everyone with young children to let your children experience this fantastic party theme . Thomas and Katie were our true friends this day Thank you so so Much !!

Snowflake Nursery: Katie is brilliant. I work in a nursery and Katie came to see us, she supplied some brilliant activities for the children every week, and not one failed to pleased them. The children loved telling there parents about what they did that morning. Thank you so much Katie x
