Nadia loves the Dr. Seuss book about Oobleck and I knew the girls would get a kick out of having some messy fun. This is where I found the recipe. The ingredients are water, corn starch and food coloring.
I gave each girl a bowl, fork, spoon and funnel. For easy clean up I placed some beach towels on the floor. Once they were done I tossed their clothes and the towels straight into the washer.
Both girls thought this was great fun. They said it was squishy, messy and drippy. Nadia spent so much time kneading hers that we had to add more water to soften it up again. Amelie loved the feel of it dripping off her hands. Once they washed their hands they did have a slight green tint, but it washed off by the next day. We will definitely do this again.
