Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and thus has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.

- Corn Starch
To make oobleck combine 2 parts cornstarch with 1 part water in a large bowl and mix with a spoon until the mixture is solid in the dish but as soon as you pick it up it turns into a liquid.
If your mixture is too watery add a bit more corn starch. If it’s a bit too stiff add a little more water.
You will know that you have the perfect oobleck when it acts like both a solid and a liquid. When you hold it in your fists it forms a solid ball but as soon as you open your hand it runs down like a liquid! So fun!
