Gel & Beads Squishy play

Today we had some fun with Hair Gel, Beads and Ziploc bags.  The kids each squeezed a good amount of Gel into Ziploc baggies and I sealed them. Then they spent the next 5 or so minutes just squeezing the gel until “D” squeezed a bit too hard and his baggie broke, haha.  Then the other kids wanted to break theirs and play in the gel too.  Instead I got larger bags, added more gel and also added beads in. Then the kids played with this mixture for about 10 minutes, using their motor skills.  I showed them all how to draw with their fingers in the gel, they loved that, but not as much as they loved the squeezing.  But that is to be expected at their ages.
