Making The Gloop

Just Grab:

  1. 250g or 2 1/2 Cups of Corn Flour / Cornstarch
  2. 250ml or 1 Cup of Water


  1. Shake 2 1/2 cups of corn flour into the tray and slowly pour in the 250ml of water, stopping to mix it occasionally. As the gloop gets thicker it can become tricky to mix with a spoon so it may be easier to use your hands to combine the mixture.
  2. Once the mixture is runny when you are gentle with it and crumbles when you are rough with it you have your gloop.

Creating The Activity

Once you have made up the gloop mixture fine some black turtle beans, felt and any other resources you have that can be used to decorate the snowman. Pop all of the items next to the tray with the gloop inside ready for your little one to explore.
