If you are looking for something fun and simple to do during a rainy Sunday afternoon or if the holidays are upon you and stretching endlessly ahead.. have a go at making some Oobleck or SLIME! This is super fun and fascinating and is quickly and easily set up with every day kitchen materials.. Oobleck is super fascinating, as it constantly moves between being a liquid and a solid.
