Goo Is Good!

Try making this fun cornstarch goo to help your child learn about textures. You’ll need cornstarch, water, food coloring, and cookie trays. Mix about 1 cup of cornstarch with ¾ cup of water and a drop of food coloring. Pour onto a cookie sheet, and let your child dig her fingers and hands in, swirling it around.
