Residents and schoolchildren united for slime-making fun at a Malpas care home.

Prospect House Care Home were treated to a visit from school children from Malpas Alport School, who arrived with one mission: to share the squishy, squashy fun of slime-making with their older friends.

The care home’s dining room was transformed into a craft hub as the children, armed with the materials guided residents through the gooey process of creating homemade slime. 


 Joe Ward, Activities Coordinator at Prospect House said: “It’s wonderful to see the residents so animated.

“Activities like these are not just about the crafts; they’re about intergenerational exchange, connection, and sharing. It was a fun activity providing a moment of pure joy.”

The slime-making session, a favourite pastime for many of the school children, proved to be a hit with the residents.

For the children of Malpas Alport School, the experience was equally impactful.

Mrs Wetton, Headmistress at Malpas Alport School, said: “The children loved making slime, it was a chance to get messy and share their knowledge and enthusiasm; we can’t wait to come back.”

The tactile experience brought back memories for some and created new ones for others.
