Make a Mess At Home – Poptastic Home Party

Today (Tuesday 19th May) we showed you our moves at our Poptastic Home Party! We hope we brought back some cherished childhood memories and you enjoyed some old school classics! We showed you how to make Hubba Bubba Playdough with our 4 minute playdough recipe and the electric whisk came out again for the Pacman Aquafaba. This week our franchise network had lots of fun creating 80’s arts and crafts for this week’s party, from 80’s prop boxes weepuls, badges, vinyl records plus lots more, check out the resources available below. So let’s go back to the 80’s, 90’s and 00’s and let the little ones squelch, pour, mix and get messy to their heart’s content.
