Dr. Suess Goop - 2 Ways

This recipe is perfect for little hands and only requires two ingredients: water and cornstarch.



Goop 1
You'll Need:
Water
Cornstarch
Orange food coloring
Directions- Mix the water and the cornstarch in a bowl. The new mixture behaves like a liquid and the a sold.
The girls enjoyed watching their spiders slowly sink, but if forced they would stay close to the top. I would use this recipe with younger children.

Goop 2:
You'll Need:
2 cups -White Glue
1/1/2 Cups -Warm Water
4 TBSP. -Borax
1 Cup- Cold Water
food coloring- orange

This GOOP is very similar to Silly Putty and it won't stick to your hangs. You can keep it fresh by storing it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator. 

Mix glue and water in a separate bowl and borax and cold water in a separate bowl. Mix 2 bowls together and add food coloring or tempera. Stir well, then kneed. Store in air tight container. Do not use near carpet as it's glue
I posted about this second recipe a few weeks ago. Now you can see the difference between both of them.
