#Scienceofplay17

Get down and dirty with some goo.

Step 1

Gather the materials.

Step 2

Prepare some water in the plastic cups and drop in the food colouring with the straws.

Step 3

Pour the cornstarch in a plastic container.

Step 4

Add the coloured water and mix properly until the mixture is wet and slimy.

Step 5

You’ve created your very own gooey goo! The cool thing about it is that the surface feels solid (you can even punch it) but your hand will sink into the container if you rest it on the surface. You can grab the mixture as well, which will come out like dough but will melt and turn into liquid when you lift it!
