It'll Be Like Putty In Your Hands It's called Thinking Putty because while you do whatever you want with it, your brain relaxes and opens up to all kinds of creative thinking.

Need it? Yes. And you can also knead it.
Or bounce it, bend it, tear it, stretch it, snap it, pop it.
And it's magnetic. You get 3.2 oz of dark green putty with iron filings infused in it, plus a 1/2" cubed rare earth magnet.
Comes in a 4" dia x 1-3/8" tin.

Expert QA
Do you have any creative tricks for how I get my kids to wash their hands properly?
From the Editors of Beauty & Confidence

Hand washing is one of the most important habits you can teach your child. This one simple act protects against colds, the flu and all kinds of infectious diseases. To do it well, you need to scrub for about 20 seconds to kill cold and flu virus, but most kids donŐt stay at the sink long enough.

One surefire way to keep them scrubbing? Sing! It takes 20 seconds to sing Happy Birthday twice. Or make the process more fun by using a few verses of their favorite tune.

Need inspiration? For a 4-year-old, try The Wheels on the Bus. Got a 9-year-old who cant get enough of Hannah Montana? Use the theme song from the TV show.

If singing doesnt do the trick, let your kids pick out soap with colors of their liking or favorite characters on the label. For young children, keep a toy next to the soap. Then, when your little one washes her hands, her little friend -- an Elmo figure or a Littlest Pet Shop pup -- gets a bubble bath.
