Pumpkin Goop Play Recipes


This is one of many play recipes we shared last Fall.  This one we just loved.  We briefly mentioned it in our Halloween activities collection, but it was so FUN I wanted to share more.

Pumpkin GOOP Play Recipe

Pumpkin GOOP for amazing Fall sensory play. Kids love this oozing cross between a liquid and a solid, and you only need a few common ingredients to make it. Smells just like pumpkin pie, too!

This pumpkin GOOP is easy to make and SO FUN!  It captures Fall perfectly in an ooey gooey play time.

Pumpkin Goop Play Recipe (what you need)
  • Corn Starch
  • Water
  • Orange food coloring or washable watercolors
  • Pumpkin pie spice
  • Pumpkin seeds
Mix pumpkin pie spice and orange food coloring with corn starch in a sensory bin or play container.  There is no special amount.  Just add enough so that the bin smells like pumpkin pie.  Then slowly add water and mix by hand until you reach the desired consistency.  Your goop should act as both a solid and a liquid interchangeably.  You should be able to pick it up and then have it turn to GOO in your hands.  Once the GOOP is mixed well toss in the pumpkin seeds for an added sensory element.
