Ready for a mess?
A FUN mess?
My kids love to make what they affectionately call "Ooblek."
Ever read Dr. Seuess's Barthalomew and the Ooblek? Well, that's where the name comes from.
So easy too--way easier than slime.
You just mix cornstarch and water--add a little food dye if you are feeling fancy. :)
1 part water
2 parts cornstarch
And yes, it is messy, but it also cleans up pretty easily.
If you want to get all science-y with it, you can talk about how it is an amorphous solid. Or let them vary the ratios of water to cornstarch.
Have a fun afternoon with your ooblek. :)
