Messy Play- Gloop Recipe

Messy Play- Gloop

Messy play, are you a fan?

I love a clean and tidy house just as much as much as the next mum but when my son and I attended SPACE (supporting parents and children's educationwww.space.org.nz) I came to realise just how important and enjoyable messy play is!
Our favourite messy play is cornflour gloop!

If you haven't already discovered this then you really need to give it a go, it had us adults mesmerised and the kids love it too. Is it a solid? Is it a liquid?? It's both!!! And it's not that messy really. I'd say aged 7 months upwards will enjoy this activity.

All you need to do –
If you're going to do this indoors I suggest you use a plastic sheet/ shower curtain or newspaper to protect your carpets.

Recipe
Add 2 cups of cornflour to a large mixing bowl and gradually add cold water stirring continuously until it becomes a thick gloop!

Roll your sleeves up and get stuck in.
