Do your kids like Silly Putty or slime?
Do they take pleasure in building things and then destroying them?
Show them the awesome destructive power of the earth with a slippery, oozing goo they’ll love to get their hands in.
In this article I’ll show you how to make Glacier Goo—a type of Silly Putty that will demonstrate the movement of glaciers.
