Ooblek

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
food dye

Easy peasy. 

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. :)
