Making goop is a great scientific experiment. Kids are fascinated to see two ingredients that when mixed together behave completely different than either one of them did by itself.
First let’s try a really simple recipe:
Simple Goop Recipe – This goop recipe requires only two ingredients. It’s perfect for younger children, since both ingredients are non-toxic. No need to worry if some of it accidentally gets ingested.
You’ll only need water and cornstarch.
Mix the water and cornstarch in a small shallow dish. The new product behaves both like the liquid water and like the solid cornstarch. Ask kids to press their finger in the mixture, or pour it into a second dish.
On the next page, we’ll have a more complex recipe, but lots of fun to make!
