8 Cook in microwave for 5 minutes (you must give it a stir each minute)

3 cups of cornflour                          water                                    food colouring (optional)

1 Add cornflour to bowl
2 Mix food colouring into water if you wish to add colour
3 Slowly add water and stir mixture
4 As water is added your mixture should become shiny and liquid
5 Do not add too much water!!  As you lift the mixture and squeeze it in your hand it should be a solid consistency.  When you release your grip the mixture should turn into a liquid and run out of your hands.
6 Gloop appears a very messy play activity however as this is water based it simply washes away under running water and is a huge favourite of children
