Glow in the Dark Oobleck

Wednesday when the kids were here we made magic mud, or oobleck.  The week before June, Mason, & I – along with Charlotte’s granddaughter Brenna – had gotten some starch out of a bag of potatoes.  We used it to make the goo.  Charlie & Adam were here Wednesday, too, and they just used a box of cornstarch that I’d bought.  They loved that slimy feeling 🙂100_8107

Jeff got out his black light for us, and we used tonic water with quinine to mix with the starch to make it glow in the dark.  We tried to get a picture of it glowing, but just couldn’t get it to come out that good.  The kids absolutely loved it, though.  I thought it was pretty cool, too :-).100_8111
