Easy messy fun that kids love.

Gloop Recipe 

  • Cornflour (cornstarch) 
  • Water 
  • Colouring

This great easy fun thing to do with young kids.

  1. Pour the Cornflour into a bowl.
  2. Slowly add water stiring as you go till it becomes a thick paste.  
  3. Add colouring drops at a time till you get the colour you are after.

The Gloop should be easy to stir very slowly and near impossible to stir fast.

When left in the bowl it is fluid yet if you were to punch it hard it is almost impossible.

Gloop Dough

Make a great air drying Gloop Dough by mixing :

1 cup Cornflour

2 cup Baking Soda

1 1/3cup  Water

Mix on the stove over medium heat till it thickens a dough forms. Take it off heat before it balls together and let it cool. knead into a dough.

This will air dry and you can paint it. pending on the thickness of your dough and your weather it may take a day or more to dry so make this an activity over a few days.

Painting with Acrylic paints is best.
