Course content

You will be guided, by our parent tutor, through the processes needed to ensure you 100% success rate in making slime.

We will be using household products and exploring science as we create and play.

You will leave with a new found knowledge and confidence of creating your very own science lab in your home.

The session is designed to promote working with your child/ren in a supportive setting where your creativity will unfold and you will be inspired by each other and proud of your achievements together.

Make special memories and leave with a pot slime and lots of creative ideas of how to use your slime safely at home.

Support and feedback

You will get continual support and feedback from your tutor throughout the session and have opportunities to discuss and review your progress.

All resources will be provided.

Please bring a pot to take you slime home in.

The session is most suitable for families with children aged over 4 years.

Please contact your local centre to provide details of your accompanying child/ren.

Will I have to do anything outside of the session?

You will not need to do anything in your own time, but we hope you will leave inspired to continue making and playing with slime at home.
