Making Goop!

aaaScience Project and Boredom Buster

Summertime is the best time to make messy science projects with the kids because you can do projects outside. Whether you call it goo, slime, ooze or any other name, kids love making and playing with this cornstarch goop and it’s a cinch to clean up because it’s simply made with corn starch. Kids will want to play with goop over and over again. Just store in a plastic ZipLoc bag. Click here to see how to make a similar project of silly putty.

You will need:
1 bowl
1 spoon
Food coloring
1 cup of corn starchccc
1/3 cup of water
measuring cups
1 ZipLoc bag
Clean, flat working environment that can get a little messy

What to Do:
1. Measure 1 cup of corn starch loosely (don’t pack down) and pour it into a bowl.
2. Add 1/3 cup of water to the same bowl as the corn starch.
3. Squeeze three drops of color into your corn starch and water mixture.
4. Mix the corn starch, water, and food coloring.
