I had the opportunity to attend the Get Messy, Get Clean Free Kids Festival this weekend at Thanksgiving Point. This festival was a lot of fun and was packed full of activities that kids would love. The idea behind the festival was to have families come have fun and learn about playing in ways that are healthy for body, planet, and pets. They wanted families to recognize that it is fun to allow kids to have fun, play, paint, play in dirt, pet dogs– and then get clean using healthier, better for you products.


There was a great turnout of kids that looked so excited to enjoy the activities. There were so many great activities to enjoy in your own home as well as at the festival. At the Get Messy, Get Clean Free Kids Festival, kids could paint their own pot, play in dirt, blow bubbles, play soccer, do Yoga, pet dogs, jump on the bounce houses and make their own bubble blowers. Seriously, so much for for all of the kids!!



When your kids were done playing they had awesome hand washing stations with Mrs. Meyer’s soap your kids could stay clean. I told my husband I think that we need a dirt table and Hand Washing station in our bathroom. I had the chance to smell all of their different soaps from Mrs. Meyer’s. It was amazing how good they smell. Personally, Lavender was my favorite! They had a full size soap sample for every guest to take home! SamplesMrs. Meyers soap wasn’t the only sample at the event. The brands were so generous with samples and snacks and wanted to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves and happy. I was able to sample Mrs. Meyers scent booster (in lavender), Justin’s Peanut Butter and Almond Butter (both really delicious), Kind Bars (my husband stole these– they are his favorite!) and Annie’s Cheddar Bunnies (kids favorite!!)  We were so impressed with the quality and generosity of the brands.

There were many brands represented at this festival. These brands had booths with activities for the kids as well as great giveaways and samples. These brands included Ecoscraps, Mrs. Myers, Paddy’s Bathroom, Freshpet, Justin’s, Ella’s Kitchen, Senda, Angies Boom-Chickapop, KIND, Hyland’s, Annie’s, and Yes To.


Food trucks are so delicious and popular right now and it was so convenient to have so many popular food trucks parked right at the festival so you could listen to music and have a bite to eat before getting back to activities. The Get Messy, Get Clean Kids Festival was so much fun! I loved all of the activities as well as learning about how I could help my kids play in a healthier, happier way!
