Oobleck Ewwww

Posted on March 13, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , |

Last week in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, ChickenFried’s class played with oobleck.  ChickenFried was insistent that we make oobleck at home.  BigD picked up some corn meal, and we made oobleck.  The only person in the house that played with the oobleck was me.  When I asked ChickenFried why he didn’t play with it, he said “I didn’t want to.”  I ask why he wanted me to make it so badly then.  “Because the teacher told us to make it at home.” 

I left the oobleck sit in a closed container for the last few days because I thought maybe he could change his mind and want to play with it.  Then when I glanced at it tonight, I noticed it was growing.  Yep – oobleck grows mold.   And Dr. Seuss would be so proud – it’s fuscia  colored mold!

ewww… you should post a pic for us! I want to see the oobleck mold!

I thought about it. But BigD made fun of me for taking a picture of the Oreo bowl so I figured I’d really hear about it if I took a picture of mold!
