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!
My 7 year old daughter and I just made this. We had alot of fun playing with it.
Wow, what fun my 7 year old and I have been having!! This stuff is so weird. It looks liquid, but when we sink our fingers in it, it is firm and powdery feeling. It's neat to watch it ooze off your fingers back into the bowl. It immediately assimilates back with the remainder in the bowl (reminds me of the silver T-1000 bad guy in the Terminator movie). The only bad thing is our hands now look like one of the Navi from Avatar. Maybe the color will wear off in a couple of days. Thanks for this cool recipe!
We used to have an annual party with all sorts of fun and games...part of which was the Green Slime Relay Race. We used green food coloring and we didn't measure the ingredients, we just mixed to the "right" consistency and handed out a scoopful (a couple of tablespoons or so) to each relay team, who had to race back and forth between two markers. Instead of passing a baton back and forth, they had to pass the Green Slime. They had to keep the Slime moving from hand to hand while running. The team with the most Green Slime left at the end of the race was the winner. The Green Slime Relay Race was always a favorite...people looked forward to it every year! :) PS: I love V'nut's suggestion for the marbles...that would be a great one, also! :)
I played with this yonks ago as a child. This can be used as a game in a Fair. Mix up the stuff and place items like marbles in it. If the participant can get a certain number of marbles within a time limit, they win a prize. Certainly brings back memories.
This stuff is so fun! We used to make it in school only it was called Mystery Matter because of the solid/liquid properties! A few months ago DH let it slip that he had never made this! We made some and played with it for a solid hour! Brings out the kid in you!
This is a wonderful thing to make. We made it this afternoon with our 4 yr old grand daughter. We had so much fun with the oobleck, she wants t do it again. It was fun for the adults also. A definite keeper for future visits. My daughter e wants to share this with her friends. If anyone has other recipes , I hop[e they will share them.
This was so much fun!!! My kids and dozen of neighbors played with this for hours outside one afternoon. I found that I had to add a little more water than called for. Thanks for the fun!
My daughter and her teenaged babysitter had a GREAT time making this, thank you!
