Grace also made ooblek using a mixture of corn starch and water. Ooblek acts like a liquid when being poured but acts like a solid when a force is acting on it.
Grace is the absolute best when it comes to clean up time. Many times, Grace and I have the most fun while cleaning up our projects. Grace is always such a wonderful helper and loves to help with the clean up process. I am a strong proponent of allowing children ample opportunities to freely experiment with a wide variety of materials and textures. This often means making a very large mess. I think it is extremely important to allow for this free exploration ~ after all, any mess can be cleaned up and that too is an important part of of a child's learning process. Today, Grace used a hose to clean up our messy Monday projects on the deck. Grace & I had a severe case of the giggles during clean up time. We both ended up very wet and very happy. It was a great messy Monday.
