Messy Play ideas: How to make Gloop

Isn’t gloop a great word! Gloop is basically cornflour slime and it’s easy to make and fun to experiment with. It has a unique texture and is a good way of learning about solids and liquids through sensory play.

Making gloop is a messy activity so you’ll want to be prepared. You may want to try this outside, or put down some newspaper or a plastic tablecloth if you’re making gloop inside.

What you’ll need to make Gloop

  • 2 cups cornflour
  • cold water
  • food colouring
  • a large bowl and spoon

How to make Gloop

Add water gradually to cornflour until it is smooth and runny enough to be dribbled.

Add food colouring if desired.


Add only a few drops of food colouring unless you want brightly coloured hands. 3 or 4 drops is probably enough.
