Making Goop!


Creative Wednesday

While it is still warm outside is the best time to make messy projects like this with the kids because they can play with the goop outside. Whether you call it goo, slime, or ooze the kids with love making and playing with it and you will love that it’s non toxic — it’s just made with corn starch. I used recyclable tins to put the Goop in for the kids to play with to make clean up easy. Since the little ones will want to play with goop over and over again, just store in a plastic ZipLoc bag.

You Will Need:

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.
