Vanilla Cinnamon Oobleck

vanillacinnamonoobleck

Oobleck is a substance that is both a solid and a liquid. When played with slowly the oobleck acts as a liquid, but when played with quickly it is a solid. Regular oobleck is fun to play with but it is even more fun when it smells yummy! The vanilla and cinnamon are a great combo for a fall themed oobleck. Your kids may even try to eat it, but that’s okay! Oobleck is non-toxic! I recommend this activity for children 6 months and older.


Ingredients & Supplies

  1. 2 cups cornstarch
  2. 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  3. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  4. 1 cup water
  5. Large bowl
  6. Mixing spoon
  7. Measuring cups
  8. Measuring spoons
  9. Container or cookie sheet


We decided to take the oobleck outside and dress the kids in messy clothes to avoid unnecessary mess inside of the house. I set the oobleck up in measuring cups and bowls on a cookie sheet outside. The kids jumped right in and began pouring the oobleck from the bowl into the measuring cups. They spend a long time exploring its texture and its ability to be both liquid and solid. It is fun to grab a large amount of oobleck with your hands to create a ball. At first it will feel like clay but when you stop moving it around it will pour out of your hand! It was my husband’s first time exploring oobleck and I think he had as much fun as the kids, if not more!

Hope you enjoy this yummy fall smelling oobleck!
