October is finally here, and Rosie and Jewel could not be more excited.  Candy corns are just one of the many fun ways to add the element of Halloween into your play.  I mean, what would Halloween be without those silly striped corns?

Candy Corn GOOP Play Recipe
  • Corn starch
  • Water
  • Orange and yellow food coloring OR washable tempera paint
  • Optional- vanilla extract
This play recipe is so simple.  Fill a container with 1-3 boxes of corn starch depending on how much goop you want to make.  Add a few drops of vanilla extract to the goop to capture the essence of candy corn if desired.  Then slowly add water and mix, adding small amounts until you reach the desired consistency.  You can actually start with less water and slowly add more as kids play.  Changing the texture of the GOOP as kids play is LOTS OF FUN!

Just before play I used washable tempera paint to drizzle candy corns on top of our goop.  This was the perfect finishing touch for amazing OOZING candy corn GOOP

You could also use food coloring but tempera paint is lots of FUN in GOOP.  It makes marbleized effects as play ensues with is really cool.
