Rainy days will usually keep us indoors, but that doesn't mean we don't have fun. Kensi has really embraced getting her hands dirty, especially with OOBLECK. It's a simple mixture of safe pantry items that allows her to practice building her hand muscles and fine motor skills. When she squishes it, it becomes more of a solid and as soon as she lets it go, it becomes runny. This activity is so much fun to do with kids of all ages!

Food Coloring

Mix the cornstarch with a little bit of water, just enough that the cornstarch is wet but not super runny. Use a few drops of food coloring and allow the kids to mix it together for color mixing. This is a great activity to work on color recognition. If you're afraid of the food coloring staining, you can leave the color out completely.

She had so much fun squishing the colors together. I'm so glad I was able to catch her little smile in between all her concentration, she would squeal every time!
