Indoor Activity: Hot/Rainy Day Fun – Lets Make Oobleck! Oo-what?!


Oobleck… what in the world is that?! 

Slime is all the rage right now but let’s be honest Moms, the ingredients to make it can be a bit pricey! My daughter loves to search the internet for new fun things to experiment with and today she discovered Oobleck!  

Oobleck is a goop that originated from the 1949 book Bartholomew and the Oobleck written by Dr. Seuss. It is a non-Newtonian fluid which means it has properties of both a solid and a liquid. The best thing about Oobleck is you can make it with just 2 (inexpensive) ingredients! 


What you will need

  • Cornstarch – 3/4 cup
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Food coloring (optional)




  1. In a bowl add the cornstarch and the water 
  2. Add food coloring if you desire
  3. Mix with hands! 



So what do Emmi and Ryann think of it??

They LOVED it!









But Mommas… this fun can be a bit messy so be prepared for colored hands (if using dye) and messy clothes! But it’s totally worth it when you are stuck indoors on a rainy or extra hot day.
