This is a great project to put on your “easy science experiments for home” list.
We will show you how to do this activity in the video below. First you will learn how to make Oobleck slime. Then you will paint on the Oobleck canvas you made. Kids will find this project fun and easy to do.
Making Oobleck is considered a scientific project because it is a non-newtonian fluid. This means it can change from a liquid to a solid and vice versa. Kids will use their artistic skills once they paint on the canvas.
Parents will love this project because you most likely have all the ingredients in your home. The ingredients needed for this project are as follows:
