The Inaugural MessFest!

What kid doesn’t like to get messy? Whether it’s a rain puddle or chocolate cake, little ones just can’t get enough of slime and sludge, like it or not.

Now normally we try to encourage the little guys to not create a mess when in the house or in the backyard. Bit it’s hard to tell a kid to not get dirty, when it comes so naturally.

Fortunately for parents, the Buffalo Science Museum has come up with the perfect remedy for children who like to get dirty. It’s called MessFest, and judging by the sounds of it, the intent is to experiment with all of the goopy, sudsy goodness that kids can get their hands on, including:

– Ooblek “Slime” Run
– Shaving Cream Chaos
– Making Snots, Why Not?!
– Volcano Blast-Off!
– Toothpaste Eruptions
– Liquid Nitrogen Mania
– Powder Painting
– Diet Coke and Mentos Explosions

What tyke wouldn’t love to mess around with all of this yucky goodness?

The inaugural MessFest! takes place on Sunday, March 22, 2015 from 10:00am to 4:00pm at the Buffalo Museum of Science – 1020 Humboldt Pkwy, Buffalo, New York 14211.
