We have a lot of fun with cornstarch in our house. I am always looking new ways to to have fun with my kids, and of course prefer when I already have everything in our cupboards.
Cornstarch alone can be… messy, its silky soft and flies everywhere when spilled, or even worse, dropped. Add in a bit of water you get goop.
Cornstarch Goop – water and cornstarch mixed together. You can add in a little food color, liquid paint, etc.
Face Paint! What child doesn’t love having their face painted?
Water Color Paint. Save yourself some money at the art supply store and make your own!
Frozen Chalk Paint. This is some fun for a hot summer day!
You can mix cornstarch with shaving cream, add in a little paint for some soft messy play.
You could really get your kids attention by making some bouncy balls with them!
We have made both of these recipes a few times one is: Silky Stretchy play dough. It makes your hands feel amazing!, and the other one is Wonder Dough. Two simple ingredients in each.
