More Flubber!

We've continued playing with flubber with some new ideas. Thanks to pinterest I found some new ways to extend our play with flubber using markers and small stones. Apparently you can write on the flubber with markers and it will not rub off on your hands or anything! So, we used a cookie sheet and let the flubber flatten itself then Lizzy used markers to draw. When she was done drawing we agreed to stretch it and see what would happen. It was pretty cool to see all the drawings stretch and then turn into a sort of tie die look. 

After drawing I brought out some small stones (fish tank stones?) that Lizzy made faces with and a snow man with. It was fun for a while then she went back to drawing with the markers and drew a rainbow!

Lizzy enjoyed stretching the flubber, making balls and bouncing them, drumming on the flubber, and stretching it to make shapes.

Painting Fireworks

Painting fireworks with a fork for 4th of July! If you want a non messy paint activity this one was pretty clean. Add some glitter to the paint to really make it sparkle.
