Have your wash cloths ready folks, this one gets MESSY! But it is such a good messy; a relaxingly delicious gooey messy. How fabulous is goop? I think it also goes by some other names, but basically corn flour and water. It’s addictive, isn’t it? You just have to get your hands in there. It’s squeaky and smooth, and when you add a little touch of lavender oil…..divine.
I’m pretty sure most of you know the wonders of goop, but for those who are yet to experience it, all you do is pour a heap of corn flour (I used about 2-3 cups) onto your tray or bowl then slowly slowly add water while mixing. It will come together into this strange liquid/solid substance. You can add some food colouring to the water before you mix if you like but white is just as nice.
Lots of scooping and pouring, a little taste testing but mostly Sarah just enjoyed running her hands through the goop.And even though goop looks awfully messy, it cleans up in a flash. So simple to make, so much wonderful sensory fun and easy to clean up. Sounds like the perfect activity, wouldn’t you say?
And my house is smelling so beautifully that I may just be tempted to take a little nap thanks to all that relaxing lavender oil.
