We have been to playgroup this morning and now its raining outside. A great indoor activity I love to do with my two year old is ‘Easy Green Gloop’. I love sensory play especially when its messy. It’s fantastic for sensory development for all ages and I’ve done the green gloop with my boys from a really young age and they still all love it (and me too!). This is a messy activity so old clothes are best although I have always found it very easy to clean up.
You will need
Food colouring (we used green)
A mixing bowl
A mixing spoon
A tray (A tuff spot would work best for this but we do not have one so we used the lid from a toy box and worked a treat!)
How to make ‘Easy Green Gloop’
- Pour 1 cup full of water into the mixing bowl
- Add 2 cap fulls of food colouring into the water
- Add in 2 cup fulls of corn flour into the coloured water and mix it up (you can make this up to whatever consistency you like I made mine quite runny so my two year old could push his cars through easily)
- Pour it onto the tray, add toys and have fun!
