Gloop is a really interesting mixture with a unique texture for children to explore and play with. Playing with Gloop is a wonderful sensory and science activity to learn about the concepts of what a solid is ? And what a liquid is? 

hat you need to make gloop. 

  • Corn Flour (Corn Starch) 
  • Water 
  • Food Colouring 

How you make gloop: 

  1. To make gloop use a large shallow food storage container/ bowl and add some corn flour to it. 
  2. Then in a jug mix together some water and your food colouring depending on the colours you want to use. 
  3. Into the corn flour pour a little of the coloured water at a time and mix preferably with your hands.  
  4. It is a really interesting material to work with however; it feels really odd mixing it. Eventually once it gets to the preferred consistency (where it goes solid when moulded and then liquid when released) you can put it on a little table with a messy mat underneath it and lots of animals to explore with in the material. 

Tip: Adding small toys such as animals are a great way to explore this material. (If preferred you can use Custard Powder instead of cornflour)
