Amazing Ooze - Easy Indoor Crafts For Kids

1 cup cornstarch
1-2 drops food coloring
½ cup water
measuring cup
large bowl

Cover a table with newspapers. Put cornstarch in the large bowl, and add 1-2 drops of food coloring if using. Add water slowly, mixing the cornstarch until all of the powder is wet. Keep adding water until this mixture looks like a liquid when you stir it slowly. The ooze is just right when it won't splash out of the bowl. Tap lightly on the surface with your finger or spoon. If it is too wet add more cornstarch; too dry, add more water.

Try to pick up the resulting "liquid". It feels like a solid until you open your hand and then it will slip through your fingers. Keep in an airtight container, and add a little water if it becomes too dry again. The kids love this stuff and it keeps them oh so busy on a rainy day, indoors.
