A few weekends ago, the National Marine Aquarium put on an special activity for children “Slime Weekend”. I had no ideal what it entailed but being annual members we decided to pop down to entertain the children for a couple of hours. Although it ended up with me dropping the children off with daddy while I did the weekly supermarket shop, then went back to pick them up.
When they came out they were very excited, telling me that they had made their own goo, put their hands in it and it was so much fun!! I was impressed with all the pictures daddy had taken and love looking through them especially this one below of them dressed in lab coats ready to start the slime making process. It seems neither would look at the camera at the same time though!
It was then time to get mixing!!
Now for some sensory fun, feeling the slime with our fingers!
Ooh, and now a huge bowl to get our hands into!!
What fabulous sensory fun, the looks on their faces shows how much fun they had. They then moved on to a huge tank of slime which they could touch and feel with fishy shaped toys inside. Daddy said this reminded him of Gelli Baff, so something you could easily recreate at home.
What an excellent way to entertain children and something a bit different. I do love the activity room at the aquarium as each weekend there are various crafty activities to entertain little ones. The slime one has to be the best yet though!
That slime looks like cornflour abd water – I used to male it all the time, it’s so tactile, I could play with it for hours myself!

What a great event! It looks like they had a lot of fun exploring all of that slime.
This looks like so much fun! Always a good idea to do messy sensory play somewhere you don’t have to clean it up!
