Oobly Goop has a texture unlike any other, making it an interesting material to work with. Creating and playing with it will encourage the student to work on isolated finger, hand and arm movements, as well as finger strength. It sets the stage for future baking and cooking projects that include mixing. Lessons include Orientation and Mobility and Independent Living Skills.
