Sensory Bin #5: Oobleck (solid or liquid?)
Sunshine’s sweet Godmama got the kids Dr. Seuss’s “Oobleck” story, along with the ingredients to make our own oobleck. After reading the story (which they loved!), we made oobleck. It’s the strangest sensory experience. It’s sort of a solid until you pick it up, and then it turns to liquid. I don’t know any other way to explain it than that. Oobleck is easily turned into a homeschool science experiment, a sensory bin, or just an entertaining rainy day project. Sunshine was not a fan of this experience, but the older kids were absolutely fascinated. I think it was just a little too weird for her. She definitely laughed a lot and enjoyed herself, but was finished with it pretty quickly. I promise you though, most kids will love playing with this stuff!
