Oobleck is always so much fun to play with, frozen oobleck is even better! Kids can mix up their own oobleck using just cornflour and water and watch the 'slime' as it changes from a solid to a liquid. This simple science activity for toddlers and preschoolers will keep young children busy for ages as they explore and experiment. Today we introduced little fish to our oobleck sensory play.
