Make Oobleck With the Children’s Museum of Cleveland

In this video, used as part of the Northeast Ohio Parent KidStream series, an educator at the Children’s Museum of Cleveland offers step-by-step instructions for making your own fun, messy oobleck at home.

Oobleck is a non-Newtonian fluid, meaning that it doesn’t follow Newton’s law of viscosity. Move it slowly, and it flows like a liquid; hit it or press it quickly, and it locks up like a solid! Oobleck is super easy to make at home, using just corn starch, water, and food coloring!

While the museum is closed due to COVID-19 precautions, check its website and Facebook page for special at-home activities, movement lessons, storytimes and more, all created by CMC staff.
