Dr. Seuss Science


To make much easier Oobelak simply mix about equal parts cornstarch and water. The kids will love to feel this odd texture. Remember if you add food coloring the kids hands will be colored too!


For a Dr. Seuss party we made Oobleck for the story, “Bartholomew and the Oobleck.” Mix 1/4 cup white glue with 1/4 cup water. Add a few drops green food coloring. In a separate container mix 2 cups warm water with 2 tablespoons borax. Stir until dissolved. Add 1/4 cup of the borax mixture to the glue mixture. Your oobleck will immediately form. This is so fun to play with. It bounces, stretches, and will pick up newsprint. Store in a plastic bag so it won’t dry out.
