Mrs. Bombardier put out one of our favourite messy activities...GOOP!  Goop is cornstarch and water mixed together with some food colouring. Just enough water is added to the cornstarch so that it is wet and will drip through one's fingers when picked up, but dry enough so it is hard to the touch when in the sensory bin. It is messy and so much fun!

Goop is interesting because it acts like both a solid and liquid - this intrigued our children especially after our experiments with melting crayons earlier in the week. We added tools like funnels, spoons, and bowls to the goop to enhance the exploration.
