oobleck recipe

You can make this non-neutian fluid by mixing 1 cup cornstarch with 1 – 1 1/2 cups water and pink food coloring. To tweak your oobleck recipe, it should not be too crumply, rather you sould be able to make it into a ball in your hand and then when you realease and open your hand – the ooblek will start oozing and sliming out flat.

Stir until you have the right consisteny. We started with a purple, but by the time we mixed in all the cornstarch it turned out to be more of a pink color. Making oobleck is really simple, right?
