Dr. Seuss' Oobleck

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by hollyfrolly

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!

We love oobleck! Started making it with my son when he was a toddler, now I will be doing this with my twin granddaughters! No need for the food coloring though - just cornstarch and water - the kids love it even without color
