Goop Monday

Everybody needs something fun to do on Mondays. Something to start the week off right, especially if you worked 29.5 hours the weekend before :p Daughter loves this and I usually break it out on rainy days, but today we made it because Momma wasn’t up to playing entertainer today. Goop is crazy! It’s solid, but then it’s liquid! It drips and oozes; it’s non-toxic and clean up is simple; let the stuff that drips on the floor dry, then sweep it up :) You might have to use the broom to loosen it off the floor, but it’s a cinch. As for the child–just toss ’em in the tub and voila! No more goop :) Looking at the mess is a little frightening-I admit, but really, clean up is no problem. It comes off of everything with water or can be scraped up when it’s dry. Type A, OCD Mommy was rearing her ugly head at first: “Keep it in the bowl! Stop dripping it on the floor.” Ok, that’s enough on your leg!” Then I gave in and fun was had by all :)


  • 2 cups of Cornstarch.
  • 1/2 cup of water. Note: I started out with 1/2 cup and then added 1/4 cup at a time until the desired consistency was achieved. Add little by little–it should feel solid in the bowl, but your hands should sink into it when pressed. It’s crazy!
  • Food coloring Note: This is optional


Solid & Drippy!

The mess :o)
