Oobleck sometimes feels like a liquid and sometimes feels like a solid.  It's easy to make and easy to clean up.  

Materials and Directions:

1 1/2 to 2 cups of cornstarch

1 cup of water

food coloring (optional)

Measure 1 1/2 cups of cornstarch and empty into a bowl or baking pan.  Slowly add the water, mixing as you go.  It should feel like a solid when you touch or poke it in the pan but it will run like a liquid out of your hand if you try to pick it up.  Add more cornstarch as needed to get the right consistency.  Add food coloring a drop at a time if you want to make it colorful.
