Children enjoy spooky slime Halloween themed workshop in Romford for half term
PUBLISHED: 12:00 30 October 2018
Children discovered gruesome Halloween themed slime at a workshop this half-term in Romford.
Nishi Saville ran the Slime Planet workshop at Trinity Church in Angel Way on Tuesday, October 24.
She said: “It was amazing! We had a really good crowd and the children were loving it.
“They created their own slime and then we took them into a dark room where they could see it glow.”
Nishi launched Slime Planet in May when she realised that people were using materials such as borax and contact lens solution.
“My kids were obsessed with slime, but on the internet I noticed that people were recommending materials to create slime that weren’t safe,” said Nishi.
“With slime, unless you have kids that are really into it, you have to buy all of these ingredients yourself.
“I created my own kit and it makes amazing slime.”
Slime Planet’s slime is certified to CE standards and has been laboratory tested by a certified toxicologist.
The Romford workshop was specifically Halloween themed with gruesome slimes which the children were invited to add critters to, like cockroaches and spiders.
Children also get to work together to create a giant vampire slime at the workshops and can add their own bubble gum and sticky-toffee pudding scents to the slime.
Once the children have learned how to roll, twist, crunches and blow bubbles with their slime, they become Qualified Slime Planet Scientists.
The workshops are for children of a range of ages, from two to 16-year-olds.
“The young ones like to play with the slime, while the older children enjoy customising it by adding their own scents.” Nishi added.
Nishi plans the workshops so that they could “bring a fun element to science”.
“At the start of the workshop we did a fun science session about slimy creatures in nature, like frogs and toads.
“We talked about glow in the dark creatures and how even our own bodies create slime.”
Slime Planet’s next workshops for half-term will be taking place in Deptford, Hammersmith and Bromley this week.
