For one of our date nights, the Sweet Bee and I made Gloop.
Gloop is a wonderful hands-on sensory activity that most children will enjoy. Most kids I know love getting their hands dirty, so just relax and enjoy the texture, and don’t worry about the mess in your kitchen. Better yet, do this activity outside!
This was the recipe for Gloop that I started from:
1 cup water
food coloring (optional)
The Sweet Bee had a great time squeezing, pulling and letting the gloop drip through her fingers.
If you store it in an airtight container you can use it again. We just added a little more water, and the Ant Bug spent an hour playing with it the next afternoon.
After two days of use it had kind of a funny smell, so I wouldn’t recommend keeping it for too long. But it was cheap, creative entertainment while it lasted!
