Q & A
Your child will choose their own colour, mould and fragrance and make 3 soaps. We will emphasise safety tips, give the students printed step-by-step instructions and a demonstration. We'll also go through materials before use.
We will serve popcorn, fruit, corn chips and water. If your child has allergies or doesn’t like the food provided, you can supply your own NUT free snacks. Please alert us to any allergies via email at email@example.com. Please also remind our facilitators at drop off. Children that have an anaphylactic allergy, must bring an EpiPen. Children that don’t have an EpiPen, won’t be able to stay.
