Spooky Science & Grandma Science Recipes

The Glob
Glass Jar:
3 inches of water with food coloring of your choice
1/3 C. Vegetable Oil
Salt

Put water and oil in jar.  Wait until it settles.  Shake salt into jar.  Oil and salt form a glob and sinks.  The salt dissolves in water.  The oil floats back up to the top.

Outrageous Ooze
1 C. cornstarch
Bowl
Food Coloring
1/2 C. Water

Put newspapers on counter.  Put cornstarch into bowl.  Add a drop or two of food coloring.  Add water slowly, mixing with your fingers until the Ooze feels like a liquid when mixing it slowly.  Try tapping with a spoon.  It's ready when it won't splash.  Pick up a handful and squeeze.  Stop squeezing and it will drip through your fingers.  When you bang on it, it acts like a solid.  But when you let it free flow it acts like a liquid.
