Hide and Seek Oobleck – Senses and Chemistry Science Challenge. Oobleck is so much fun and a great science activity. With the Hide and Seek Oobleck Science Challenge you can test your powers of touch in a whole new way!
Kids love to play and explore and when it comes to science for elementary, oobleck fits perfectly. Although oobleck is fun on it’s own, after a while even it can become a bit boring. Especially when you have a mom who really loves science and uses Oobleck as her go to busy activity! While brainstorming a science activity for my 123 Homeschool 4 Me article this month I came up with the idea of Hide and Seek Oobleck.
Although relatively simple, Hide and Seek Oobleck kept the kids busy for ages. It engaged their senses and really challenged them. Turns out oobleck is not a friend when it comes to using your sense of touch for identification! The kids loved the many challenges presented by this activity. From trying to figure out how to get the objects to sink, to trying to identify them with only their sense of touch. This activity was much harder than they thought it was going to be. And they loved the challenge of overcoming the obstacles created by the tricky Oobleck.
