Experimenting with squishy, squashy polymers creates the perfect opportunities for young children to engage in sensory play and to naturally use scientific processes while having fun.

The Slimy Squishy Polymer Bucket comes with items such as test tubes, biodegradable cups, mixing spoons, coloring tablets, and an experiment guide to help you make the following: Gobbledy Goop, JellyStones, Water Marbles, Glow in the Dark Spit Balls, Slippery Spheres, Silly Squares, Space Sand, and Super Snow. Adding a little water to crystals and powder will create lots of science fun for your little ones.

Use this bucket to learn, create, and play with your child. That’s part of the fun of parenting! There are many ways to enjoy preschool science fun with the Slimy Squishy Polymer Bucket. Use the super snow to practice writing letters and numbers, teach the importance of listening and following directions by allowing your child or student to work independently after being given instruction, and make Space Sand and use it to discuss the sea and coral reefs.

My son LOVED this bucket! Each activity was super fun and engaging, He made a snowman from the snow, he took the bouncy balls outside and him and his friends threw them on the ground to watch them explode, he stacked the cubes.. there was so many fun things to do! Thanks for putting together a super fun bucket of activities!” -Faith
