Sensory awareness goes hand in hand with creativity. Sensory play arouses children’s imaginations, creativity and curiosity through exploration of texture, temperature and fun!
Gloop is an interesting mixture with a unique texture and is great for sensory play. It is also great for learning about the concepts of what a solid and liquid is.
You will need:
2 cups of cornflour
1 cup of water
Food Colouring (optional)
A large container or bowl
Place the cornflour into a large container and place a few drops of colouring into the centre. Have the water ready for your child to pour into the container. Mix the water into the cornflour and colouring. It will take some time to mix together but encourage your child to play with the gloop before it is mixed.
EDIBLE PLAY DOUGH (particularly effective if dyed green)
1/3 cup softened butter
1/3 cup golden syrup
1-2 tsp peppermint extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 lb powdered sugar/icing sugar
Mix together the butter, corn syrup, peppermint, salt and any colouring. They need to be well combined.
Add the powdered sugar and mix it in. Tip mixture out onto a surface dusted with more powdered sugar, and knead into a smooth dough.
Store in plastic wrap in the fridge if not using immediately.
