Mix together 1 part water to 1 1/2 parts corn starch. Add green food coloring and two boys at opposite ends of the sensory spectrum (Andrew can’t STAND to feel gooey things, Isaac could bathe in it)… and it makes for a fun afternoon.






It’s called oobleck and I found a recipe for it here. It’s neither a liquid or a solid, which was the hook for Andrew (that and he didn’t have to touch it…he could just use spoons) and it mixes into a remarkably gooey goo, which was the hook for Isaac. A perfect Rice family experiment if ever there was one. :)

Have a great weekend!

About robyn

I stopped teaching Kindergarten in 2005 to become the mom of two crazy boys here in Brooklyn. At first I thought being a stay at home mom meant that I needed to pour all my time and energy directly into my sons, but I realized somewhere along the way that being a rockstar mom meant not only taking good care of my boys, but also taking good care of myself. And taking good care of myself means pursuing something creative...just about everyday. I started Made In Brooklyn to motivate myself in my creative goals as well as share my work with others and perhaps inspire them in their own creative journeys.
