I believe it is called Gak or goop. It is made with glue and liquid starch, if I remember correctly. I made some a few years ago with my preschoolers and they loved it.

Cornstarch and water makes it. It is solid like on a table or whatever but you pick it up and it liquid.

I don't know the name. It's just cornstarch and water. Even plain baby powder will work, since it's cornstarch.

cornstarch and water. You can also look up the words gak, and goop and get some cool recipes. There is also kool-aid playdoh my kids love that one.

its a non-newtonian fluid...lol or goo....just cornstarch and water until when you stir the cornstarch SLOWLY it feels like a liquid but if you tap in it with your finger it doesn't splash...that stuff is so much fun!

YES! And there's a Dr. Suess book that goes along with it :)
