Best decision we made!

"We engaged Lisa from Artful Splodgers to run activities for my son’s second birthday. Best decision we made! Lisa took care of all the set up and pack up, and Lisa’s selection of activities was perfect to occupy a rowdy group of 2-6 year olds. She deftly kept the kids engaged and entertained, and her materials were so appealing there were plenty of parents happily joining in! Working with Artful Splodgers was key to having the fun but low-stress party we wanted - and we even got a beautiful keepsake to remember all the fun my boy and his friends had together! Thanks Lisa."

Let Artful Splodgers bring fun and creativity to your child's birthday party.

Our unique service offer two types of classes; Messy Play Parties for children aged 0–5 years old, and our Arts and Craft Parties for children aged between 4–11 years old.


A theme for your child’s party can be selected from our lists below. Alternatively, we can tailor the theme of the party to suit a particular interest of your child for a small additional cost.


We can ensure that each child will love the activities on offer at our parties and as a nice treat - every child will go home with their very own artistic creation!


Times indicated below are for the party only and exclude set up, pack down, and travel time.

"Lisa and Bec organised a great 6th birthday party for Harry and his friends. Bec was so lovely, she quickly put all the kids at ease and got them into creating their wonderful artworks. Everyone had lots of fun and loved seeing all the finished products. Lisa was wonderful in organising everything, super responsive and happily answered all my son's questions about the different activities and helped him decide what to pick.


Thanks so much Artful Splodgers, a perfect choice for my art and craft loving kids."
