Science. One Bite at a Time.

The kiddos are going to l-o-v-e this floam recipe. It’s easy, incredibly stretchy and edible. Yep, edible.

I found this Gummy Bear Floam activity while researching gobs of slime, goo, and floam recipes. I’ll admit, I wasn’t quite sure about this one. But, we tried it the other day, and WOW!

You’ll love it, too, since you only need a few ingredients and it’s quick to make. Think of all the skills they’ll be working on — sorting, counting, measuring, mixing, predicting, comparing, contrasting and waiting. Added bonus – the building of hand muscles and fine motor skills.
