2 Ingredient Oobleck
If you are a big Dr Suess fan then you would know Oobleck gets its name from the book Bartholomew and the Oobleck.
Oobleck is a wonderful STEM activity for all ages as it’s a substance that acts like a liquid, and can be poured, but also acts like a solid when you apply force to it by pushing it or squeezing it.
You will need:
- 2 cups cornflour
- 1 cup water
- food colouring (optional)
Mix all ingredients together in a tray or bowl then play.
We had lots fun experimenting with the solid and liquid state that Oobleck forms, Maddison loved the liquid dripping and forming into a solid.
Oobleck will store for a few days in a sealed container in the fridge.
To add to your STEM experience check out the Oobleck on speaker videos on YouTube to watch it dance to the sound vibrations.
