Oobleck Recipe

Oobleck Recipe

Oobleck

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of Corn Starch
  • 1 cup of Water
  • Food coloring (optional)

What to do

  1. In a bowl, combine corn starch and water.
  2. Once combined, add the food coloring and mix well.

If you are not sure if it is the correct consistency, here is a little hint. You want to be able to make a solid ball in your hand that changes and oozes as soon as you open your hand.

If it’s too dry, add a couple of table spoons of water.

If it’s too wet or runny, add a couple of table spoons of corn starch.

Once ready, let your child explore with their hands and maybe add some spoons or sifters/baskets for some extra fun.

Cleaning Tip: Once dry, it can be easily wiped of.
