Sensory Play: Making Oobleck

I hope everyone is staying dry and safe in this Hong Kong super typhoon weather. We’ve been stuck indoors all weekend, no school on Friday and it’s been a very wet and windy Saturday. We made playdoh, oobleck and I’m running out of ideas to keep my toddler entertained.

I’ve also allowed free flow screen time for my sanity. We’ve put vehicles and animals in the oobleck to rescue, I added food colouring to the oobleck.

It’s super simple to make:

Oobleck, learning and playing with solid and liquid form

1 1/2 cup of corn flour

1 cup of lukewarm water

a few drops of food colouring (we did purple, obviously his favourite colour)

Mix it all together and it get that magical mixture of oobleck – part solid and part liquid.
