"Want to keep the kids entertained for hours and also have them learning at the same time? Tell them you are going to be making Oobleck! What’s Oobleck? Well, it’s kinda like slime but it’s both a solid and a liquid. The intriguing texture of Oobleck makes it a great sensory activity that you can incorporate into a home school science lesson! Do you remember hearing about quicksand as a kid? Well, Oobleck is the texture you’d envision quicksand to be, but luckily you won’t be falling into it! "
