The crazy world of SLIME

Tracy Prescott owns her own Creation Station franchise and runs art and crafts classes, parties and events for children and adults in Horwich, Lostock & Westhoughton (West Bolton) 

Tracy shares some of the slime making fun she got up to with her two fabulous super helpers

"Like most kids my two love making SLIME, yuck! Yes I know it’s my job but as a parent, I’m still allowed to say yuck! The only SLIME (made with glue and activators) we make is The Creation Station one. Purely because I know it’s safe and most importantly based on the fact my two are 8 and 4 and still quite unpredictable, I know how to dissolve it when it gets on their clothes, in their hair, on the floor, and yep even off the cat…….. you’ll see what I mean when you watch the video…. 

So our lovely founder Sarah put a message out to our sparkly Creation Station Network  ‘Anyone fancy making some edible slime’ oh oh oh me me me!! My 8-year-old Elizabeth loves making edible SLIME and we have tried quite a few. Some taste amazing and other’s not so much and then there are the chocolate ones which she loves ….just the look of them brings on palpitations as my face starts to turn green, but hey I love having fun with my kids and doing things that make them happy. So we accepted Sarah’s challenge.

Before you watch the first video I must explain that my 2 children are polar opposites… Elizabeth loves getting messy covered in paint, gloop, sand you name it she’s not bothered it's all part of her creative process. Then there is Lucas….. if you have been to one of Little Explorer classes you’ll know our awesome mess defying red suits, well my little boy is that one child that will not under any circumstances entertain wearing one. Yes, he loves to paint but he doesn’t like paint on his hands, he loves play-doh but it's not messy, and yes he does love slime but not making it that’s for mummy to do. Once it's made he’ll be there for ages driving his monster trucks through it and stretching it across the kitchen. It would be a boring world if we were all the same!

So here is our first (be kind) Edible SLIME how-to video, to join in you will need.

  • 1 x bag Haribo golden bears (or other similar)
  • ¼ cup Icing Sugar
  • ¼ cup Cornflour

WARNING: The melted sweets will be hot so adults only until it cools sufficiently. This one tastes yummy and it’s hard to stop eating it! I would suggest a one-play session and then bin it…well what’s left.

Have fun, we definitely did!

See you again soon!"

Sparking my inner arts and crafts hobbyist

Absolutely love these classes. I was first introduced to these from another baby group leader, I wanted to take my little boy to some different groups. When we were allowed to go, we went to the baby groups in Westhoughton. It was a very warm welcome that made us feel so comfortable in a new group. Everything was explained fully on what we had to do in the groups, even providing protective clothing for the clothes for my little boy. After this, I have gotten to know the group leader a little and now started to join in monthly arts and crafts zoom meetings with other ladies who enjoy this. I never thought I would start a hobby doing this but I LOVE IT! I’ve now made 2 things and am waiting for the March class to make more. It’s something to take my mind away for a few hours and do some creating. I was always so interested in arts and crafts when I was young but now this has got my mind buzzing. Thank you for your groups and lovely leaders! It’s been brilliant doing these groups in lockdown!

A brilliant arty party for 6 year olds

We held a joint online arty party for my 6 year old daughter and her friend today and it was brilliant. Nicola Gillaspy was really helpful in organising the event and sent out everything we needed ahead of time, and was an absolutely brilliant party host. All the girls were engaged and made some lovely crafts, and it was lovely to see them all laughing and having fun together, in spite of the lockdown. Thanks Nicola - highly recommend her parties ☺️

I cannot praise the creation station enough. It has been a wonderful experience taking part in the zoom calls and it has been a god send to my sister, who has learning difficulties. I wish I had found you sooner

Lots of fun!

My 9 year old twin girls absolutely love their Creation Station sessions with Alexis. They always want to do the normal after school sessions, and are equally enjoying the zoom after school sessions plus some extra holiday sessions too. Alexis is great with the children, and the crafts are fun and varied.

Wizard Workshop

My 6 year old loved the online Wizard Workshop! You can tell Alix was a teacher as she has the ability to hold all the kids attention. They had great fun with the slime making and other crafts. It was very exciting to receive the box in advance and I think for 2.5 hours it was also great value for money.
