We only have a week left before school starts. So we are doing our best to live large for the next few days. The plan.. to spend as much time with the kids as possible because on Monday everything changes.
On the agenda, (the kids have decided the agenda), Oobleck. What is oobleck you ask? Pretty much the coolest "goo" you can make.
Now I am not a fan of "goo." I don't really even like play dough. In fact there isn't any in our home. Gasp!!! So making Oobleck in our house is a big deal.
Oobleck comes from a Dr. Seuss Book. A favorite ever since my son read it in school.
Then make your very own "goo."
2 cups of Cornstarch
1 cup of Water
Food Coloring (optional)
Decide if you are going to color your oobleck. We are. There will be pink for the girls and orange for our son.
Mix a few drops of food coloring with your water. Then mix the colored water and cornstarch in a bowl.
Put some muscle into it. Don't give in to the urge to add more water. You'll know when it's ready because you will be able to hit it AND pour it. Amazing. Our son thinks this is the coolest science project ever. He wonders if this is how magicians walk on water.
You and your kids will play with this for hours.
Cherish these last few days of summer. Spend some time together.
DO YOU HAVE PLAY DOUGH IN YOUR HOUSE?
HAVE YOU READ BARTHOLOMEW AND THE OOBLECK BY DR. SEUSS?
