Homemade Goop Recipe

This homemade goop recipe makes enough for 1 child, inspiring sensory creation with cornstarch, water & food coloring.

1/2 cup cornstarch
1/4 cup water
small bowl, tin pie plate, etc.
cookie sheet or pizza pan
more water
Food coloring (if desired)

Add the water to the corn starch in a small bowl, tin pie plate, etc. Mix the homemade goop together using your hands. If you need to add more water, add just a couple of drops (especially after playing with it for awhile).

Ask questions like:
What does the corn starch smell like?
How does it feel?
What is it doing?
