Please alert us to any allergies in writing at info@blazeandfoam.com.au Please also alert our facilitators on the day at drop off. Children who have an anaphylactic allergy must bring an EpiPen. Children who don’t have an EpiPen, won’t be able to stay.


 

 


Please Note:



A Full Day Workshop is also available: We run a melt and pour soap making activity in the afternoon 1.30am-4.00pm. Book the soap making program on its own here, or complete both the morning and the afternoon program. 


During the one-hour break between the candle making and soap making programs, children are fully supervised by our experienced staff. They can eat their own home packed lunch and participate in down-time activities such as drawing, puzzles and crafts. If your child is staying for the full day, please pack them a nut free lunch to eat during the supervised one hour lunch break between programs.
