Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

Happy happy birthday to the one and only Dr. Seuss! This American writer and cartoonist would be 111 years old today! SO…we thought we would pay tribute to this lovely, looney, tooney legend with a craft from one of his famous stories, Bartholomew and the Oobleck.

As a child, this was one of my favorite rainy day activities and would keep me entertained for hours. 🙂 This super simple oobleck slime recipe will guarantee a goopy good time (with barely any ingredients!)


  • 1½ cups of cornstarch
  • 1+ cup of water
  • green food coloring
  • glass mixing bowl
  • mixing spoon
  • newspaper or other covering for a work surface

Then just slowly mix together the water and cornstarch and add the food coloring to achieve the desired slime green! For the complete instructions, click HERE

Have your child experiment with the different forms the goop will take, it’s like magic!

** When finished, do not pour the oobleck down the drain as it will clog. Dispose in the trash**
