Messy Play: Gloop

For someone who doesn’t do messy play, we have had 2 goes at it in 3 days!!

Today we attempted ‘Gloop’ or rather, Cornflour and water.

I poured some Cornflour in to the messy play tray and poured over water. I have toddler a whisk and some spoons to play with. Myself & K put our hands in to mix it all together.


Toddler tried to have a go but she just couldn’t bring herself to touch it bless her!


I’m not sure if we made the gloop right as we’ve never done it before, but it was fun putting our hands in it and mixing it all! (And was fairly easy to clean off which was a bonus!)


Now, to try to find something for our next session!
