Let’s face it. Experiments are fun! To a kid, nothing is as fun as getting messy. So when you want to have fun with kids and maybe even teach them a little about science, what about making some gloop? This experiment has also been known as “oobleck.” It is just three very simple and inexpensive ingredients, but it entertains even full grown adults. We did this experiment with our three kids ages 6, 4, and 2. I almost think that my husband and I had almost as much fun as the kids did with this. It is also nice because non of the ingredients are harmful, so my two year old was able to get right in on the action without me fearing if it would harm him to get it in his mouth.
