Things to Do
Give each child a piece of drawing paper. Each child will need a marker or a crayon(different colors for each child). Have the children close their eyes and draw a squiggle on their paper.
Children then switches papers with a child who has a different color marker or crayon. After switching papers the children create a picture from the squiggle--finish the drawing. Set a time limit to finish the drawing. What can you make out of that squiggle? Write on the back what the drawing is and share with the class.
2 parts cornstarch
1 part water
Food coloring (green)
Mix 2 parts cornstarch with 1 part water. Mix until it is thick. Add food coloring. Place oobleck in ziplock bags and seal (can use tape to make sure the bags stay closed). Squish it. Lay flat and use your finger to draw and write on it.
Oobleck can be made in a tub or bowl. Stick your hands in the tub of oobleck and squish it. Try to pick it up and watch it turn to a liquid and slide off your hands. Have water and paper towels near so the children can wash their hands.
