The other day we had family visiting and we ended up having a random Dr. Sues day. If I remember right Barry took his brother down to fly the black hawk simulator (awesome brother bonding time)! I watched them walk out the door and then slowly turn around and now I have seven young and rowdy kids looking at me, (or not because truthfully they are running all over the house chasing each other. ) “What to do” I think to myself. Then * lightbulb! Make OObleck!
Rrrrch! ” Wait a minute. Not so fast. I seem to be recalling something? Hmm oh! It is almost there,,… ! Aha! There is work to be done first.” This shouldn’t be rocket science. Sometimes I like to blame my kids for stealing my brain heheh! So I put the kids to work. Laundry, vacuuming, and dishes. Man, with this many kids the work gets done fast.
Now, play time. So I pulled out the cornstarch and water and let the kids help me stir and pour. We added a little green dye and presto! We have an ooey gooey mess, but the kids are having fun!
Next we make OObleck juice. I pulled out my juicer and the kids helped my wash and eat and juice.
– three lemons
-head of celery
-head of Romaine
The results are delicious and nowhere to be found.
Then we headed on down to the local library, and checked out only five books. Laugh if you want, but the computers at the library were being reset. The librarians had some very sad and long faces(The kids definitely pulled the puppy dog look),when we found out we could not take home our twenty plus books we had picked out. “Oobleck” By Dr. Sues, made the cut though.
As an added plus to the day we brought out the “fish piñata” that the kids and I had worked on last week. It turned out really cute and it was a lot more sturdy then I thought it would be. The children had many turns before it was completely pulverized by Noah in the end.
I made sure to call all the kids together at bedtime and read to them the story they had all been waiting for. We really had a great time!
