Dr. Seuss Oobleck Recipe

It’s time to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday! If you’ve never made Oobleck before, you and your kids MUST try it! Oobleck is from Dr. Seuss’ story: Bartholomew and the Oobleck 

Oobleck is a green slime that is part liquid and part solid. You can integrate Oobleck into a science lesson or just have fun at home with it. If it’s a sunny day, you might want to make it outside. Otherwise, just prepare a fun space that is easy to clean up. Just a little soapy water is all you need for clean up.
