Making it a Goop Day

At Aussie Adventures Child Care & Kindergarten our Before & After School and Vacation Care kids enjoy making goop!  Children of all ages love making and playing with goop, and it’s completely safe!

Playing with goop has several benefits for children, these include:

  • Helping develop fine motor skills, in particular hand eye coordination.
  • Encourages social skills such as practising negotiation skills, turn taking and sharing.
  • Goop is also exceptionally beneficial in self-regulation, particularly for children who have behavioural challenges (calming anxiety).
  • Most importantly, is its sensory exposure. Sensory play helps children understand all five of their senses: touch, smell, taste, see, and hear.

Here’s how to make goop:

  1. 5 cups corn flour (corn starch)
  2. 1 cup water
  3. 2 drops of food colouring dye


Mix all ingredients until the goop consistency.  Post your goop play in StoryPark!
