Non Newtonian Fluids are liquids that become solids when under pressure, where Newton had described liquids as only being able to be effected by temperature. (eg Ice or melting a solid)
Take 8 heaped teaspoons of corn flour and approx 40ml of water. very slowly add the water where stirring into conrflour. as the water mixes in it will get to a point where the liquid will turn solid when tapped with a finger or the spoon but will remain a liquid while being stirred gently. It should be possible for the Cub to pick the mixture and roll into a ball!! once they stop rolling it, it will turn back into a liquid and run back into the bowl.
