Messy Play: Goop

It has been raining cats and dogs for the past couple of weeks. The moment it didn't rain, I had to get Tiger out of the house for some messy play.
I have been dying to make goop/gak/slime for some time. Here's a link to some recipes at http://www.kidsactivities.net/

Since I don't bake, we were lacking some basic ingredients. All I had on hand was some multi-purpose flour and cornflour. So, I simply mixed the two with some water and green food colouring until I get the right consistency, runny but not too watery.

Our goop

This is the reason I love messy play outdoors: Tiger practically radiates happiness.
If happiness is measurable, it would be off the charts!!
Ohhh, he actually peed in his suit before I took the shot...LOL

Guess what? My Little OCD boy was disgusted...LOL (see pic)
He touched goop and exclaimed,"Eeeekkkk"
Then, he ran away!!
So much for sensory play, he needed a scoop :p

Getting aquainted ^.^

Finally, after some time, he enjoyed it!

What's sensory play without a little tasting?

Washing up is part of the fun!
This time he didn't throw a tantrum when is was time to stop..phew...

We love getting messy!! (Outdoors, of course)
