Is it a LIQUID or a SOLID??! Combine the sciences with OOBLECK! Kids can make their own, get a little gooey, and watch it dance!
Oobleck is a classic science experiment that's perfect for entertaining both kids and adults. If you haven't seen it in action it's very fascinating stuff and before too long you'll have your hands covered with it, happily making a mess that can be washed away with water. The "Bio Butter" acts like a liquid when being poured, but like a solid when a force is acting on it. You can grab it and then it will ooze out of your hands.
