A Goo-Filled Sensory Activity That Doubles as a Science Experiment

[Editor's Note: Do you have a child who has sensory issues, especially with textures? Or do you have a child who loves to do science experiments -- the messier the better? Then this post by Darcel at The Mahogany Way is just for you. She created some great "goo" with water and cornstarch and let her kids have a fantastic and messy time. Looks to me like it would be a great rainy day (or, too hot day) activity! -Jenna]
This is a really great sensory activity, yes it's messy, but once it dries it peels right off. As I've stated before Nakiah and Ava are quite sensitive to texture. For a long time ago didn't like to get her hands dirty, and if she did they had to be washed quickly. Now she loves to get down and dirty with the best of em'.
Nakiah did this over and over with her hands. I think she wanted to see if it would leave an imprint.
You know this is also a great science experiment. We had fun playing with the cornstarch to water ratio to get it the consistency they wanted.
