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 Oobleck
Oobleck 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.
