recipe: Oobleck

Recipe found here: http://skiptomylou.wordpress.com/2007/03/02/oh-the-places-you-will-go/

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.


  • 2 cups of cornstarch
  • 1 cup water
  • a few drops of food colouring (optional)
  • mix ingredients together
  • try it (hit it then pour it off a spoon) before adding more than 1 cup of water

I love the Oobleck experiment. I did it with my 4 year old son this weekend. He learned about non-newtonian fluids, polymers, and molecule chains. Cool stuff! We found a fun site with neat science experiments like this. I will put the link below for anyone interested.
