Witches Brew Oobleck

We loveeee messy sensory play and when it comes to Halloween themed messy sensory play we can really get creative and creepy with it.

Witches Brew Oobleck:
- green oobleck
- purple cooked angel hair pasta
- plastic spiders and/or spider rings
- plastic witch's cauldron

Firstly, to make the green oobleck all you need to do is mix cornstarch with water until you get the right consistency, which is to be able to grab a handful of it but then once you lift it up have it start running off your hand back into the bin, or in this case cauldron. Add water to your corn starch just a little at a time until you get to this consistency and then add a few drops of green food coloring and mix that in.

For the purple cooked angel hair pasta all you need to do is cook the noodles, drain them and then put them in a Ziploc bag and add the purple food coloring and shake it all up until they are coated.

Put the oobleck in the cauldron (if you didn't make it in there already), add in the noodles too and then the spiders/spider ring add ins. This is such a fun sensory play for toddlers because they will love to get to feel all the different textures, preschoolers playing with this will really get into pretend play with it.
