If we're not gettin' gak-tastic, we're busy making this concoction (called "Oobleck" by some). It consists of
  • 1 1/2 C. Corn Starch
  • 1 C. Water
  • Food Color
Mix ingredients. When pushed or tapped or knocked on, the mixture appears dry and solid. When held and dripped, it's a liquid. Like magic!

Of course, we "painted" ourselves with the corn starch as well. (It reminded me that old-timey Cornsilk powder from the drug stores.)

Neat food coloring design.

It makes a terrible mess, but this science experiment is totally worth all the clean-up.
