The sensory play zone in my days as a Kindergarten teacher was always flocked to by both childen and adults alike and recognising the incredible value of this type of exploratory experience, I thought I'd create some delightful, slimy goop for Sage to immerse herself in - literally!

  • 2 cups of cornflour
  • 1 cup of cold water
  • 4 cups of boiling water
  • Food colouring

  1. Combine the cornflour with the cold water {it will have a very unusual consistency - this is normal!}
  2. Add the boiling water, one cup at a time, stirring in between.
  3. Add the food colouring {or divide mixture into jars before adding colouring if you would like individual colours}
  4. Enjoy!

Fair to say, she totally loved it!

  1. What a brilliant thing to do! I've always made goop for Bijou but never really thought (or was brave enough) to make some for Remy. Will definately do this with him over the next few days. I bet clean up was fun too ;) Wishing you a lovely rest of your week :)

    1. I bet Remy would absolutely love it Steph! Although it is messy, at least it's quite easy to clean. I learnt that having a bath run ready is absolutely essential! :-) enjoy with your little man. I'm going to take a video of Sage doing it again sometime soon. Such fun! x

  2. This is so beautiful, a mum letting her child explore colour, texture & mess - i let my children go crazy with mess like this, you can always soak the clothes & rinse the children. Just gorgeous, sweet blog, hello!! Love Posie

    1. Oh thank you Posie. She just had an absolute ball. Mess and exploration is what childhood ia all about! x

  3. SO GREAT!!! what a little cutie she is!

    thanks for stopping by my place and leading me here
