Oobleck is such a strange and enchanting substance. It is neither fully a liquid or a full solid. It is both runny and solid at the same time which makes for a very interesting sensory experience, especially for little learners.
EYFS Area Developed:
- Understanding the World; discovering animals and the natural world

To make Oobleck:
Combine ½ a cup of cornflour (cornstarch in the US) with 1 cup of water and mix together. You will notice it starts to ‘stick’ at the bottom as you are stirring it. Once combined it is ready!

Coupling Oobleck with small world play provided the perfect activity for a rainy afternoon.
