Why Hide Easter Eggs in Oobleck?

When plastic Easter eggs are hidden in the oobleck, it becomes a sensory experience as children dig and explore the texture to find the hidden treasures. The oobleck's consistency also adds a challenge to the game, making it more exciting and engaging for kids as they try to figure out the best way to extract the eggs.
Overall, hiding plastic Easter eggs in oobleck is a great way to keep kids entertained while stimulating their sense of touch and creativity.
