Rainbow Ooblick

Had a blast today at summer camp with our rainbow ooblick.

We spend most of camp outside, so we have two sensory tables out in our outdoor classroom.
We made ooblick- a mixture of cornstarch and water.
Then we added liquid water colors to the corners and some edges. While the children played with the ooblick, the colors swirled and made this tye dye effect. It was quite dramatic and they loved it.

My 13 year old was even enthralled with the ooblick and spent a lot of her counselor time playing there with the children.

And clean up was a breeze as we could just hose the tables down at the end of camp.
