This NON-EDIBLE recipe is named after the strange material that falls from the sky in Dr. Seuss' book, Bartholomew and the Oobleck. It's a really fun recipe to be used as a science experiment of sorts with young children. ----Is it a solid? ---- Is it a liquid? **It's a liquid until pressure is applied. Hit it hard and it feels like you are hitting a wall! Touch it gently and the material will flow around your fingers like water! **Have fun using different utensils to play- see what form it takes while using different cups, spoons, bowls, etc. HAPPY PLAYING!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix ingredients together in a medium sized bowl. (Add water slowly as it may not need entire cup!).

This stuff is awesome! It did exactly what was promised. It's hard when you stir it fast or hit it but its liquid if you are easy on it. My 8 year old had a blast with it! Thanks for the great recipe!
