Green Peas - Messy Play and Nature Crafts in North London

North London Mums has a really useful directory of local North London businesses and every week we will introduce you to one of the businesses who advertise with us. This week we want to tell you about Green Peas, a fantastic Natural Messy Play class which advertises in our Activities and Classes for Children section.


These are free flow art session for children aged 15 months - 4 years in Muswell Hill, Crouch End and Highgate with a strong emphasis on playing with natural and recycled objects.  A typical session lasts  one hour and includes: creative craft activities, tactile play, painting and drawing table. There are over four activities during each class – your toddler will be having fun while you can relax and get creative! 

Getting messy with a tub of gunge = child in heaven!

When we visited there were five stations - two different painting areas, sticking, gunge, and playing with textures. My daughter was really excited to move around the room trying the new things and very happy that she could get as messy as she liked. Most materials were natural so we did sticking with feathers, pulses, grasses and leaves and then played with a big tub full of different grains and pulses to experience textures. The sessions are very environmentally friendly. The stations change every week so there is always something new to do and create.

 Materials used in the class are eco-friendly

Green Peas was set up and run by Anna, who is a natural facilitator - calm and organised she creates a lovely safe environment to encourage creativity. We will definitely visit again!
