Snowy Day Activity: Oobleck

If you are as tired of being stuck in the house as I am, then you are probably looking for a new activity to do with the kids!  Here is a fun (and kinda messy) activity to try during theses snowy days. 

Best of all, you can turn this into a reading activity with the Dr. Suess book Bartholomew and the OobleckOobleck was the name given to a type of slime that "gummed" up the whole kingdom.


  • 1 part water
  • 2 parts corn starch
  • Food Coloring (Optional)
  • Mix ingredients well.
  • Mixture should change between a liquid and a solid when handled.
  • Experiment with the ratio of water to corn starch to see which consistencies you prefer.

This makes a fun mixture to play with textures.
