After trying all four samples we had some other thoughts as well…
~we would like to see a little more science explanation included with Yuck. Since we were camping, we didn’t have internet access and I did not investigate polymers ahead of time to be completely prepared. I think most teachers and homeschool moms would appreciate having the research done for them and included with the product.
~the Chunky Yuck takes 24 hours to complete… anything that takes longer than 5 minutes is really too long. We lost interest watching it.
~all four samples were the same color. We think it would be helpful if the different dry Yuck products could be different colors so that we could tell them apart as they were developing. However, once each type was fully developed we had no difficulty distinguishing between the sticky yuck and the saucy yuck.
~creating Yuck in a small group worked well. I can’t imagine how it would work in a traditional school classroom, though. It would be difficult to keep the mess down with more children involved.
A bucket of Yuck costs anywhere from $16 to $20 for one pound. While I think it was fun to try Yuck, I can’t imagine, as a homeschool mom, why I would ever buy an entire pound of it.
However, Buckets-o-Fun offers free samples and I would definitely recommend anyone requesting a sample to try for themselves. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find Yuck in your bucket!
