    Create Oobleck - Older Kids

    Older kids: Create oobleck and explore it’s qualities. Main takeaway "This Oobleck can be hard and solid, but when it is picked up and in my hand, it becomes flexible. It changes. When we encounter God, we have hard-hearts and we want to be totally in charge of our lives. But if we allow God to touch us, He will change us if we allow Him. Like Jacob, we will never be the same again. If we stay in the hand of God, and listen to the Holy Spirit, then our lives will bring much joy and pleasure to God and ourselves. Instead of being hard-hearted, in God’s hand we become usable, flexible, and able to glorify God."
