Parties at Xplore!

Our Parties are Slime - filled, Space travelling, Dinosaur travelling fun. Escape the stress of party planning by coming to Xplore!

There are 3 themes to choose from

  • SLIME - Delve into this interactive workshop and discover how to make your very own pots of slime to take home. Have fun changing the colour, making it glow in the dark and even adding beads to your slime. Test your slime to see how much you can stretch it, squash it and bounce it.
  • ROCKETS - Walk across Neil Armstrong’s footprint then get creative and design your own rocket, before launching them at the end using water and effervescent tablets. The fun doesn’t stop there, take your rockets home and launch them up into the air over and over again.
  • DINOSAURS - Become Palaeontologists and use magnifying glasses and brushes to uncover fossils. Can you work together to find a dinosaur footprint, fossilized frog and a T-Rex tooth? Afterwards, design your own dinosaur and make a mask (KS1) or puppet (KS2) to take home and enjoy for hours to come.

We are able to cater these for between 10 and 20 children.
