Wednesday night after dinner, the girls were in need of some indoor fun, so we decided to make a batch of oobleck for them to play with! Oobleck is an awesome non-Newtonian substance that I remember making when I was in the fourth grade and it was just as amazing and fun now as I remember it being then. All you need is cornstarch and water to make your own. Just combine equal parts cornstarch and water until you get a smooth consistency. You might need to add more cornstarch to get it right and keep some extra water on hand for adding later. We found that we played with the oobleck so long, we needed to add more water to replace the water that evaporated!

When it was time for the girls to go home, we put the rest of the oobleck into a plastic bag and sent it with them. I'm sure we'll be making lots more in the future! 

love & cupcakes,
