Every parent's security blanket & instruction manual
Frogbellies are fun and interesting; tactile experiences like this can be calming for children.
Take equal parts of cornstarch and warm water and you and your child mix these together in a bowl with a spoon--it will be a hard stir.
Then put these frogbellies in your hands and see what happens-fascinating changes from liquid to solid to melding to cracking.
For more interest, add several drops of different food coloring to frogbellies-see what happens. Give frogbellies a home in a ziploc bag for future fun.
