Why not try some St. Patrick's Day gloop today.


4 cups cornflour

2 cups water

Drop of green food colouring

This is a great sensory experience as the gloop feels like a solid when played with but once you stop can feel like a liquid. Some real hands on science learning that links in critical thinking and communication. It's also a really relaxing texture to manipulate.

Why not add in some kitchen utensils like sieves or strainers, spoons, jugs and measuring cups to extend the play and see how the gloop moves from one place to another.
