We love Gloop!  It is so much fun and so easy to make.  You need Cornflower and water.  Put as much cornflower as you like into a bowl and then slowly add water to it, mixing.  When the consistency is of a thick milkshake there is enough water and you are ready to play!  I added some food colouring to the Gloop! to help aid my youngest understanding of colour and plus it just looks prettier!

Gloop! is great fun to play with.  It starts like a liquid but the more you mix, stir, squish etc it becomes solid allowing you to build towers and castles from it.  The girls loved exploring the texture with their hands

 And it was not long before they got their feet in too

The lovely thing about gloop! is it also appears to melt.  This was a great way to discuss melting with my eldest and as she is a big Frozen fan it was also great to talk about snow and link it to something she could relate to.

Gloop! is so much fun to play with and for messy play it is surprisingly easy to clean up after.  As when the gloop! dries it is just like flour which can be swept up!
