I must admit I was quite mesmerised by myself and Alex absolutely loved it.
It's an incredibly easy craft to make, do and clean up too!
All you need is:
Some utensils/bowls to play with.
We were talking about how it felt, hard, sticky, then runny and squishy.
Alex did a bit of role play, we pretended to scoop ice creams, making/icing cakes. Alex spent ages 'spreading butter' too. Once I got one of our Easter plastic eggs we filled it up and watched the gloop drip into the jug or tray like breaking a real egg for a cake.
Alex spent well over an hour playing with the gloop, and he even asked this morning if we could play it again-so it must have been a success! He played with it quite tentatively at first as I think he was unsure, and a bit uneasy of getting too messy but it wasn't long before he was covering his arms up with the gloop and squishing it through his fingers.
If the gloop started thickening too much we just added more water & vice versa.
Found a good page for explaining why gloop is like it is here the video looks fun too!
Linking up with Messy play for Matilda Mae & Messy Monday's.
