Oobleck Sensory Bin

We finally had a clear day outside so I made an Oobleck sensory bin for the first time. I don’t know who had more fun, me or Miss 3.

Seriously, have you guys tried Oobleck Slime yet? It acts as a solid when you pick it up, then it liquefies instantly. So cool!

This is our spring version with a bit of teal food coloring mixed in.

Miss 3 gathered some flowers and leaves from our garden to add to the bin. We added shells for loose parts play. We found the stainless steel VARDAGEN measuring cups and spoons at IKEA.

To make Oobleck to fill a regular size TROFAST bin from IKEA, see the recipe below:

You will need:


1.) Pour the water into a bowl.

2.) Mix food coloring into the water.

3.) Slowly add corn starch to the colored water and mix. (Tip: Swirl the bowl to help mix.)

4.) Pour the Oobleck into the sensory bin container and play!
