I is for. . .

What is a good word to teach kids about I?? Preschool was at my house today and I had the letter I. I is for Icky. Since I am not room mom this year I had a small dose of creativity with his preschool.
I hid these

In here

The kids tried to help me make this goo last night which consists of cornstarch, water and food coloring. It wasn't goopy enough so I had to boil it to make it really goopy.

Here is what I heard from boys (the one girl here today did not mind)
"This is DISGUSTING! I am not touching this!"
I said
"You have to if you want the treasures"
Poke Poke Poke
And then their hands were submerged.

I had high hopes they would have played with the goo longer but I took what I got. Good Fun!

They get into icky stuff when we don't want them to and then shy away from it when we want them to get into it. What's up with that?!
