Let’s get experimenting! Our little scientists will have a chance to explore different sensory materials, discover cause and effect and study science in a simple hands-on fashion.
This month we discovered Oobleck: The Dr. Seuss Science Experiment also known as slime.
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 very fascinating stuff and before too long you'll have your hands covered with it, happily making a mess and the best part is it can be easily washed away with water.
Oobleck gets its name from the Dr. Seuss book Bartholomew and the Oobleck where a gooey green substance, Oobleck, fell from the sky and wreaked havoc in the kingdom. Here the Oobleck will be made in a bowl and will likely make a mess, but only because you can get carried away playing with it.
This is a simple expirement fun for children of all ages and you can find the materials in your home. We used bowls, water, corn starch and you can add food colouring which is optional. We added 1 1/2 cups of Corn starch into our bowl. We slowly mixed in 1 cup of water and had fun!
It was messy but cleaned up super easy with just water. Plus, its not toxic if they eat it!
