Have you Ooblecked?

Items needed:
1 c. cornstarch
1/2 c. water
optional green food coloring

Oobleck is a classic science experiment that's perfect for entertaining both kids and adults. If you haven't seen it in action, it's FASCINATING stuff and before too long you'll have your hands covered in it... happily making a mess that can easily be washed away with water.

Oobleck acts like a liquid when being poured but like a solid when a force is being acted on it. You can grab a chunk and then it will ooze out of your hands!

It's a great boredom buster for a hot summer day. Check it out.

And someday, we'll actually post about our new house... which we are LOVING!
