Attraction Information

Dragonflies Durham uses messy play sessions and sensory play to inspire parents and teach children! From water and sand to spaghetti and paint, you can have fun and creative play with your children without the mess at home. An alternative to soft play within a learning environment.

At Dragonflies Durham they are providing a unique play experience. They provide the creative tools and messy play sessions for you to play alongside your child in a safe and fun environment. Helping them learning through messy and sensory play.

Sensory play includes any activity that stimulates your young child's senses: touch, smell, taste, sight and hearing. Sensory activities and sensory tables facilitate exploration and naturally encourage children to use scientific processes while they play, create, investigate and explore. Spending time stimulating their senses helps children develop cognitively, linguistically, socially and emotionally, physically and creatively.

Teas, coffees, drinks and snacks are available as well as toilet and baby changing facilities. Sessions last for 1 hour so plenty of time for you and your children to get messy, have fun and clean up.

They are running themes and events throughout the year so check the website through the link here to see more details or book online.
