I’ve been experimenting with some sensory recipes and finding some that work and a lot that don’t. Experimenting is fun though!
I took the recipe for slime and added cornstarch to it. In the end it is goopy, slimy, and a lot of fun. Since it’s kind of a cross between slime and ooblek and goop, I call it slimy gooblek.
What you’ll need:
Plain White Glue
In a medium size bowl, add about 1 bottle of glue (8oz) to about 1 cup of hot water. Stir together.
In another bowl add about 2 tsp borax to 1 cup of hot water. Stir until borax is dissolved. Add in about 3 tablespoons of cornstarch.
Pour the glue mixture into the borax/cornstarch mixture. You should get some globs from the glue and borax combining.
Add more cornstarch in until you have a mixture you are happy with.
I’ll admit that I didn’t use any measurements. I just poured and added more of whatever. Just play with it!
You can pick up the mixture but it is slimy and like cornstarch, settles quickly.
It was a bit watery for my taste so I let it sit out overnight. The texture in the morning was much thicker, but not as slimey.
Now it’s time for the Sensory Party! First, I get to feature 4 of my favorites from last week!
1. Christmas Playdough Activity Tray from Happy Hooligans
2. Christmas Tree Sensory Bags from Gift of Curiosity
3. Snowman in a Jar from The Connections We Share
4. Simple Christmas Sensory Play from My Nearest and Dearest
I hope you’ll join in on the sensory play party! We would love it if you’d add the button to your post, though it’s not required.
