Oh. My. Goodness!
So much fun.
I have wanted to make this stuff with the Grandboy for months after seeing it on Pinterest back during the summer. I finally bought some cornstarch a few weeks ago so that we would have enough to make Goop. Now I can't remember exactly who's pin I saw because apparently I didn't re-pin the pin.
This is the PIN that stuck out at me and the one I used as a guide.
Ok, our "ingredients" and recipe.....
1 1/2 cups cornstarch
1 cup water
3 or 4 drops of food coloring
Grandboy did the measuring and he picked the color blue for his goop.
After measuring the cornstarch, he started "squeezing" it together
This stuff is so neat, it feels like you're picking up a solid but then it just slides right off of your fingers
This is an absolute winner! And of course we had to get the "mens" involved in this fun..
He played with this stuff for 2 hours! Now that is awesome.
And this stuff is fairly easy to clean up, I only had to wipe my counter 3 times with a soapy rag, but be careful not to get food coloring on your nice clothes.
Now doesn't this picture say he had a blast?
I even enjoyed playing in this stuff and I will be buying the biggest container of cornstarch next time! And maybe next time I will add the tempra paint like my source used to make it slimy.
I strongly suggest that if you have young kids and you haven't made this with them, please do so. We had so much fun and it just fills my heart with so much joy to see Grandboy having fun with a smile on his face.
