Mars Mud

Mars Mud is "an unusual little inorganic polymer that sometimes behaves like a solid and sometimes behaves like a really thick liquid." I'm not sure why it's labeled for 5 and up, but it can keep Elizabeth busy for over an hour. I like it because it's not nearly as messy as playdough (quite a different sensory experience!)


Elizabeth and Maria played with it together for a long time making all kinds of creatures. They thought it was really funny to see how far they could stretch it out without it snapping. I took the girls into the laundry room (our largest room with no windows) in order to demonstrate the glow in the dark excitement, but clearly I was far more interested in this aspect than they were. Elizabeth pointed out that "it's easier to play with the lights on, Momma". Maria was merely bemused.

That stuff looks really fun! I might have to check it out. I hate playdoh because of the crumby mess, so we need a new modeling clay in our lives.

...and I really like the color of it. Nice and bright!!
