Playing with Goop

By Smilinglikesunshine @smilinglikesuns
It was very rainy this morning so instead of going to the playgroup, we decided to stay at home and play with goop.
All we needed was some cornflour and water. Defne enjoyed mixing it using her hands.Playing with goopNow, goop has quite an interesting texture. As you mix it with water, it dissolves in it and all the lumps disappear.And it becomes liquid.Playing with goopIf however, you wait for a little while, it thickens and hardens and you need to scrape it using a spoon which Defne enjoyed. Scraping and mixing again, it turns back into its liquid form. At this point, we decided to add some food colouring using a squeeze bottle. Playing with goopShe found it quite interesting that the little drop got bigger and bigger.Playing with goopShe  stirred it with the spoon and loved the swirling coloursPlaying with goopShe then wanted to add more colours, so in went red and yellowPlaying with goop
A little while later, she added glitter, too :) At this point, it had turned into a dirty brown color which wouldn't look nice on a photo so I'm not adding a picture of that one. She had a great time, exploring and playing.
As it was still on the table,  we had another go at scraping when we sat for lunch: She was very happy to see a lovely blue color under the disgusting brown mixture :) Perfect sensory play for a rainy day!
