ooey and gooey

Doodlebug's idea of a good time! Our little one-armed bandit and his best buddy went off to Mindquest for a chemistry workshop exploring the wonders of gloop. They had the best time playing with various substances and seeing some basic chemical reactions like submerging eggs in vinegar. My personal favourite was the bread dough Doodlebug brought home, but his pride and joy was the collection of assorted slime:

From the left: The absorbent "stuff" from inside nappies, biodegradable carrier bags mixed with warm water, Rainsaver crystals, PVA and lastly psyllium husks (or "silly yum" as per Doodlebug's label). We live in a world of slime.....

The boys had a great time and can't wait until the next Mindquest comes around in 6 months.


  1. Specimen jars! ooey and gooey and wee-ey!

  2. I think it's either psyllium husks or ground linseed that you can use as a hair gel.. might be worth the experiment.

  3. You know you're a nurse when're kids use the specimen jars for various things

    among other things :-)
