My daughter did a science project with her class at school and I thought this was neat. I wanted to share it with everyone, so you can try this with your child. This is a simple project and you can spend time together while doing it. While doing this project you are going to be making a solid that turns into a liquid and then back into a solid. Your child is going to love this. All kids love Goo!!
- measuring cups✔
- 1 box of dry cornstarch✔
- large bowl or pan✔
- food coloring (if you want)✔
- 1 and 1/2 cups of water✔
Check out this video of how she made her goo and how it turned out.
★Handy Tips for This Project★
Keep an extra box of cornstarch just in case you pour too much water in the bowl. Sometimes kids get excited. We got our cornstarch from our Dollar General for $1 a box, so it wasn’t expensive at all.
You don’t have to use the food coloring but kids love to have colored GOO. My daughter chose her favorite color, blue. Her hands were definitely blue after mixing, but a shower took it right off.
I would not recommend that you pour this in your drains, just because it turns solid to liquid. I wouldn’t want you to have to call a plumber. 🙂 We had a small bowl of water to wash our hands in and then dumped it outside to be safe.
Clean up is simple. This will wipe right off of the surface you made it on and come off your hands easily.
You can store the slime from any of these recipes in a sealed container, such as a bowl or a plastic bag. The slime is good for a couple of days at room temperature or at least a week if stored in the refrigerator.
Why does this turn liquid?
