Gak, Oobleck, Flubber & Silly Putty recipes

Science class at home-fun, easy recipes for Gak, Oobleck, Flubber and Silly Putty from (The site also offers several other recipes and ideas for fun learning at home.)

I took my kids to a fellow daycare mate's birthday party and the Birthday boy's mom gave homemade silly putty as party favors. What a great idea! I asked her for the link so I could share it on my blog. I can't wait to make some myself. It is such a great way to teach sensory motor skills.

This is AMAZING! I teach a number of students with sensory motor needs and I'm totally going to test these recipes out with my them next week.

Glad the recipes are going to good use! My daughter's day care buddy does have some sensory motor skill problems and loves playing with this stuff.

I love the Oobleck experiment. I did it with my 4 year old son this weekend. He learned about non-newtonian fluids, polymers, and molecule chains. Cool stuff! We found a fun site with neat science experiments like this. I will put the link below for anyone interested.
