Oobleck Recipe: Make some Dr. Seuss-inspired slime at home! It’s a fun sensory material that can be used with any kid-friendly kitchen tools you have lying around.
Ingredients: Basic ratio – 2 c. Cornstarch to 1 c. water
Pour cornstarch into bowl/cookie sheet/pan
Add Food coloring
Stir to combine
Store in a bin open to air, to allow it to dry out and avoid spoiling
To clean, let it dry out, it will return to powder form to be swept or vacuumed.
Activities: Use with baskets, colanders, strawberry baskets, splatter guards, sieves.
Sorting Activity: Find some objects your child can easily sort at home; for example, sorting pom poms or blocks, even socks! Feel free to sort by aspect rather than worry about if you have the same material. The goal here is to find something children can sort in a clear way. For instance, you could sort crayons into colors. One thing that is sometimes forgotten is where the sorted materials will go. If you can place a bowl with a piece of paper with the aspect (like the color red) it will allow kids to be more independent during the activity.
