What exactly is goop?  

Goop is a play slime for kids that acts as both a solid and a liquid interchangeably.  If you move your hands quickly you can pick it up, but once your hands are still the goop will turn to a liquid and ooze from your fingers.  Read on to see how you can make goop slime that glows-in-the-dark!

How to Make Cornstarch Slime

Materials
Method
  • Begin by adding the desired amount of cornstarch to a large bin or container.

  • For point of reference we used 3 cups, but you can use more or less to yield different amounts of slime.
  • Slowly begin to add water to the container in small amounts, slowly adding more water and mixing until the desired consistency is reached.

  • How will you know when you have it right?
  • You should be able to pick up the play material but then have it quickly turn to liquid in your hands.
