Materials: Cornstarch, baking pan, water and (Optional food coloring)

Mix one box of cornstarch with enough water to make a thin paste. Tint the mixture with food coloring if desired.

Place the gloop in a 9" x 13" pan in order to contain it.

Place gloop on plastic or vinyl place mat for toddler to play on give toddler spoons, cups etc.

The gloop will change from wet to dry thick to thin as it is stirred.

Cleans up well just brush off the powder.

Materials: Liquid starch available in the laundry supply section of the supermarket and washable school glue.

This concoction is stickier and messier than gloop.

Mix equal parts of school glue with liquid starch in bowl. A half cup of each works best.

Place glurch on a place mat as you would the gloop.

If mixer gets to sticky just add more cornstarch.
