Liquid solid

Nora and I tried out another activity with sensory play.  Cornstarch and water.  I got the idea off of Pinterest (where else) and thought it would be another fun activity to do.

All you do is mix cornstarch with a little bit of water to get a thick paste and that’s it!  You don’t want the mixture to be too watery so err on the side of too little water.  Once I started mixing this and felt the texture I actually remembered making this mixture in a junior high since class!!

If you’ve never made this and felt the texture….its awesome!!!  I think I may have played with it just as much, if not more than Nora. iLiquid solid was the best way I could think to describe it.  It looks like a liquid but when you squeeze it or press hard on it it acts like a solid, then immediately goes to its liquid form.  Run your finger of it quickly and it glides over the top, but run your finger through it slowly and it feels like a liquid.  It makes a slight mess, but it dries like powder and sloughs off, so it wasn’t that bad.

Apparently Nora wanted to try and get her whole body in it.
  

Nora really liked it!!
  

We got messy and had fun.

Another activity that we will be doing again.
