Glowing GOOP Halloween Activity

The weather was terrible here today, which meant that we were stuck inside ALL day.  In order to stay sane I needed an activity that would keep my two small children occupied for a while.  This glow in the dark GOOP did the trick perfectly!

GOOP is such a fun play material, and it is really easy to make!  To make this activity even more fun I made the GOOP glow and added a array of Halloween toys- making it GOBLIN GOOP.  Halloween is right around the corner after all!

Glow GOOP Recipe:
Optional:  

Method
This recipe calls for roughly equal parts of water and corn starch.  You can easily double and triple the recipe, too.  Add the corn starch and paint to a sensory bin or container, and then slowly add water and mix.  Continue to add water slowly and mix until the desired consistency is reached.  You can use more or less water to produce different Goop consistencies.

I wanted my girls to get to explore freely, so I mixed the glowing goop up in the tub.  This contained the mess and made it really easy to clean up when play time was over.  It also gave Rosie and Jewel a large space to play.  I added lots of silly, spooky toys to give us a good GOBLIN GOO

Filling the bath with the goo allowed for the girls to explore freely with their whole bodies.  I love that all the mess was contained and easy to clean.  All I had to do was turn on the water once they were done and the Goblin goo washed right down the drain (Just let the water run for a bit to make sure all the goop is out of your pipes)

A few tips:  You can use glow in the dark or fluorescent paint for this activity.  I recommend using a black light to produce a bright glow.  The one we use for all of our activities can be purchased online here.
