Ooey Gooey Lady

Tuesday night, I had the pleasure of attending a workshop held for free at our downtown library.  I was there to see Lisa Murphy (aka the Ooey Gooey Lady).  If you haven’t seen her or heard of her, you need to check her out!

Lisa brings a funny story along with a serious message–KIDS NEED PLAY! AND THEY NEED LOTS OF IT!!

We got to watch her make some of her crazy concoctions and talk about the ideas we could use them for in our early childhood classrooms.

My favorites are Flubber and Oobleck (guess what I’m making Friday for Dr. Seuss Day??)

We got to learn about edible paint, cheap musical instruments, and ways to teach young kids about science and Non-Newtonian fluids.

Here is Lisa doing her thing!  She’s hysterical to listen to and tells it like it is! 🙂

Check her out! 🙂

    Kristen,

    Would you recommend any of her books? I thought they all looked good, but wanted to know your opinion!

    Thanks for all that you share!!!

    • Hi Pam,
      I think my favorite would be, “Even More Fizzle, Bubble, Pop & WOW!”. I like it the most because it’s more science related–they all are really, but this one explains the science a little better. 🙂
