In order to make the Goo you'll need 16 oz cornstarch, 1 1/2 cups water, and food coloring (if you want to make it a color). Great! And I happened to have all 3 things!
Step 1: Pour the box of cornstarch in a bowl and smile for Mommy!
Step 2: Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the cornstarch
Step 3: If you want your Goo to be a certain color add about 15 drops of food coloring (or if you're Aiden 52 because you get so excited to squeeze the bottle!)
Step 4: Time to get messy and use your hands to mix it all up!
Step 5: Have fun!!!
Aiden didn't want to get his hands dirty at first, but once I got in there and showed him what it would do he thought it was awesome!
It's like a solid, but then also a liquid! We could make a ball but then just as soon as you stopped patting it, it would "melt" back down. Aiden had a great time making hills and then screaming, "It's melting!" as it would go back down.

|Looks like a puddle, but it's more solid to the touch|
