Ooey Gooey Goo

In honor of our trip to the science museum this week, we did some science experiments the other day. Theo has been wanting to make a baking soda volcano, and we were unfortunately disappointed. It fizzed up a bit like soda, but not the big overflow he was hoping for. Bummer!

But ooey goo was a big hit.

We mixed cornstarch and water and it made this weird half solid-half liquid concoction.

Clark did not like it. He would nervously stick one finger in the goo, then run off to wash his hands. (Then repeat over and over.)

But Dora and Theo were surprisingly mesmerized.

They played with the goo for 45 minutes straight, and then for another half an hour before bedtime.
