How to Make Oobleck
OOBLECK. This stuff is amazing. Mix 2 cups of cornstarch and 1 cup water in a bowl. To color oobleck, add a few drops of food coloring to the water before adding to the cornstarch. Takes some effort to mix the water and cornstarch. Oobleck defies Newton’s third law of motion–for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. If you quickly smack oobleck with your hand it immediately turns into a solid, instead of splashing or moving. If you slowly move oobleck it reacts like a liquid.

A new kind of goo!
All you need is a bottle of shaving cream and a box of corn starch. This was enough for two tubs of this wonderful, fluffy stuff! We poured about half the box of corn starch in each tub and then just squirted the shaving cream into them. We used the entire bottle between the two tubs. The incredible thing about this is that after a bit, it's moldable! I love the Ooey Gooey Lady!
