Ooblek!!! It will blow your mind!


- Powder corn starch
- Water
- A bowl of some kind


Put about a cup of cornstarch in a bow then add about 1/2 cup of water. Add more 
water if is not becoming wet enough or add more starch if is too watery. 

I really want to tell you what happens with this experiment. But I am afraid to take away the 
surprise! Try it first and mess with it. See how liquid it is and what happens when
you touch it harder and faster! It will blow your mind!!! 
Big Boy played with it for long time and we were almost fighting to see who gets to play with it!

For a variation try to make it in a bottle!!! See how the  liquid moves through the bottle when you slowly turn the bottle to its sides. Now, see what happens when you shake it!!! You can add food coloring, some aromatherapy oils and add other things like rice to see if it changes anything...
