First you need to start off with equal cornstarch and water. And a big bowl to mix it up in. Now if you want to make fun colors I suggest putting a drop of two of food coloring into the water before mixing. Pour both water and cornstarch in the bowl and start mixing. The goal is to mix it until it runs off the spoon easy. Clumpy like the green stuff here needs a little more water. Add small amounts until you get a runny consistency like the pink stuff below.
Now the fun part, go ahead, knock on it. Cool hun? It's hard.
Now rest your fingers just on the top of it and watch them magically sink in.
The kids were in awe! They had a lot of fun. Bacon Jr. had fun getting it to stick to his hand and picking up the bowl.
Little Miss Bacon had fun watching it drip off her fingers.
Even Bacon bit had a bowl to play in. It was a great activity to do on one of those 'I'm bored' days. Or rainy days or days you just want to be the cool mom!
And you can add a lid and save it for fun the next day too! I did find that it only lasts a few days though before it starts to smell and go bad but the kids can have fun while it lasts!
