All you need is:
- 1 cup cornstarch
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 4 cups cold water
- Food colouring
- Ziplock bag sandwich size or bigger
- Duct tape
- Small-ish Pot
- Mixing bowls for different colours
~ Mix cornstarch, Sugar and cold sugar in a small size pot and stir.
~ Stir some more
~ Once the mixture begins to thicken, remove the pot off the heat, still stirring. It should thicken into a pudding consistence, and start looking a little transparent with a blue tinge (Vaseline looking).
~ Leave to cool
~ Once cool, you can add one colour or divide and mix into a few colours, I did yellow and red and mixed them in well.
~ Place in zip lock bags. Put duct tape on the top for extra safety measures.
~ Give to toddler to explore. You can also hang it on a low window so the light shines through.
