Oobleck!

Last week, Michigan was hit with rainy, cold weather. We had to find many ways to keep ourselves busy. So one day this weekend, we decided to make oobleck. Oobleck is a mixture of cornstarch, water, and a bit of green food coloring. It is both a liquid and a solid and is a lot of fun to play with! Tommy absolutely loved it. He would squeeze it in his hands, which would make the oobleck hard, and then open his hand and the oobleck would become a liquid. Needless to say, it was getting pretty messy in the kitchen, so we did end up playing with it outside. This was a great way to pass the time though when the weather isn't great!
