Oobleck: Mindboggling Fun, Easy Clean!

We made oobleck the other day on a whim while we waited for dinner to cook.

The ingredients and recipe are easy peasy.

  • 1.5-2 cups of cornstarch to 1 cup water.
  • Start with 1.5 cups cornstarch.
  • Add bit by bit until you get that crazy texture.
  • Add food coloring (optional visual fun)

Playing with runny, slimy, indescribable feeling stuff right before eating ended up being ok because the mess was so easy to wipe with a wet rag!

Why is it a hard solid one moment …..

….and runny liquid the next? 

AMAZING!

3 min= Endless Sensory Fun!

*I* was fascinated and couldn’t wait for more play tomorrow!
