Squishy Goo In A Bag

Squishy goo is awesome for those parents who don't like mess. This is a perfect activity for toddlers to feel a different texture and to squish, squeeze, smash and poke to their hearts content. Best of all, we (the folks) don't have to worry about squishy slimy goo going into our beautiful carpet or into the corners of our couch. It's also very effective for toddlers who don't like to touch slimy gooey stuff or getting their hands dirty.

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
  • Spoon 
  • 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.
