Make a Mess returns to the Museum this winter! Drop in each Saturday afternoon starting January 6th  for unstructured play for primary-aged children and their families. Create without instructions, colour without lines, and play games without rules! Unstructured play encourages creativity, mixed-age play and independence.

Make a Mess is a great opportunity to get out of the house during the cold winter months for indoor play in a fresh setting! Meet other parents, grandparents and guardians while kids play.
