Goop is fun, safe, reusable and although messy, cleans up easily.
1 packet of cornflour (I use a cheap generic brand)
1 - 2 cups water
food colouring, tempura paint powder or acrylic paint (if you like)
Mix water into cornflour a little at a time until you have a gloopy consistency. Drop the colouring in (if using) to the depth of colour you like.
Put into a container or tray and play!
When the children are finished it can be stored in a container with a lid. If it dries out just add more water and stir again.
* A note about food colouring.
The children ended up with coloured hands, if this is undesirable go with the paint options.
This is my first post for kid's art and craft on the SHE team blog (Schooling at Home Etsians). My post will be there tomorrow. Head over and check it out!
