Every Thursday morning we go to a "Messy Play" playgroup. We do painting, play dough, make mud pies and this weeks all time favorite was the "Cornstarch Goo." Alex had so much fun with this. We even brought some home to play with later.
This goo is extremely easy to make and provides lots of entertainment. It can be extremely messy. You may want to lay newspaper down on the floor or table before you start. You will need:
Shallow tub or bowl
Pour a small box of corn starch into the tub. Mix in small amounts of water. Then get your hands into the mess to get the full effect of this weird texture. The cornstarch and water mixture will harden in your hands when you squeeze it, but when you open your hands, it melts like goo.
