Make Your Own Oobleck

Nothing about Dr. Seuss was ordinary, so we are celebrating the EXTRAORDINARY! If you are a parent, chances are, you've heard of Oobleck. In case you haven't, it gets its name from the Dr. Seuss classic Bartholomew and the Oobleck where a gloppy, green slime fell from the sky. Our kids come home begging to make it, and now is the perfect time!

Here is a link showing you how to make it. Watch the video and you'll see just how fun it is. We promise, your kids will be THRILLED!
