Made this project with my son's 3rd grade class and it was a hit! We used ribbon instead of felt for the scarf. We also used curly ribbon and tied it around the body to hang from the tree instead of the pipe cleaner. After we painted the craft sticks we sprinkled them with glitter instead.
Oobleck is such a fun science activity for preschooler. They will quickly learn that cornstarch is hard like solids but can also flow like liquids. This allow children to explore and form their own imagination.
