OOOOOOOOOOOOObleck!

Of all of the DIY crafty playthings that the web has to offer, this is one that I highly suggest doing. SO much fun.

It's nice if you start by reading Bartholomew and the Oobleck, but it's plenty fun even without the tie-in.

mixing the ingredients

starting to thicken...

T is apprehensive, but intrigued


C: "oh YEAH!"

it's stretchy! (And food coloring stains your hands! LOL)

This stuff feels SO cool.

Shaping it...

...and making shapes IN it.
This is seriously the *coolest* stuff. Nothing "homemade" about it. It's wonderful stuff...gummy and slippery but not sticky or slimy. It holds shapes, but not for long. You can break it into pieces, and they flow back together seamlessly, and instantly. It feels incredible. What a great indoor boredom-buster!
