Oobleck (or a non-Newtonian liquid) may just look like, well, slop, but this unique concoction – which gets its name from the Dr. Seuss story “Batholomew and the Oobleck” – is really simple to make, great for sensory play for pre-schoolers and is a fascinating science demonstration – all rolled into one!
You’ll just need three ingredients to make your own Ooblek at home (plus a bowl to mix them in), then have fun trying to work out whether it’s a liquid or a solid!
