goop 7 (640x424)As I mentioned in previous post, the grandchildren were here for a visit. One of our projects focused on making slime – another project (a standard for Pre-K teachers) was goop or oobleck. This is another great sensory experience for young children.

Like slime, it is easy to make but a little messy so cover your table or work surface to help in the clean-up.

Goop (Oobleck)



Liquid water color (Optional)

There are no proportions, that is part of the experience. Pour some cornstarch into a mixing container. Then gradually add water and mix. The cornstarch and water makes a substance that is solid in the dish but turns to a fluid when you pick it up. Again, lots of good messy fun for young children.
