Care Homes

Care Homes 


Are you looking for a new and exciting activity for your residents and service users? We have a range of interesting science related activities for residents in Care/Nursing Homes. 

We offer 3 main science-based activities.  Each workshop lasts 30 to 45 minutes. You can just pick one or for a longer session mix and match the sessions you would like.  Whatever you chose, we’ll make it work for you 


Soap Workshop  

In this workshop learn the history of soap – when it was first invented, who used it, the first basic soap recipe, what essential oils we can add and how they benefit us.  

Everyone will then have the opportunity to make their own individual soap 

We will provide a melted premade base; each participant can then choose to add colours and/or essential oils to create a totally unique soap to suit them or their loved ones.  A great gift for children and grandchildren too 






Slime workshop  

Can you ever be too old to make slime?... we think not! 

In this fun and interactive workshop, learn the science behind the properties of slime before having a go at making some of your own. 

Our simple slime recipe is quick to make so we can then get onto the fun of experimenting with it - how well can we mould it and whose will stretch the furthest? A great workshop if you have young visitors in too 


Sherbet workshop 

Everyone likes sherbetThe great thing about this activity is not only do you get the fun of making sherbet, but you also get a sweet treat to enjoy afterwards 

Learn what sherbet consist of and the chemical reaction that takes place when it touches your tongue.  

Everyone can then have a go at making their own using our simple sherbet recipe – a mix of edible citric acid crystals, bicarbonate of soda and icing sugar. 
Suitable for all able elderly/adult residents and any family (4 year plus) they may have visiting.
