we had a lovely example of creativity today, we had salt dough in our art area ( we are attempting salt dough decorations for the village church !) and i made some slime in the messy area.

 

the children had a great time making the salt dough by themselves,they found the rolling pins and some cutters etc -some made sausages, some made mountains (you can never have too many sauages and mountains decorating a church lol !!)

 

i tend to stand back and help if needed, well - i watched this little girl from the corner of my eye, she rolled the dough, formed it into a snake shape then curled it up.....she then found a paintbrush, and took some slime from the messy tray....i continued to watch without saying a word......she then painted the top of her saltdough shape with the slime until it was covered.

 

she then called me over .....told me she'd made a doughnut with icing on !!

 

bloomin fab !!!! thats why i love my job

 

ive now had to cook it....no idea what it will do in the oven, but we will all have a look at it in the morning !!

We make slime with cornflour

Use 1 part cornflour to 3parts water – boil the water and mix cornflour with a

little cold water into a thick paste – pour some of the boiling water onto the

cold mix and put it all into the pan – boil the mixture, stirring all the time until

the mixture is cooked – leave to cool

our slime usually uses soap flakes and boiling water -but i couldnt find soap flakes so i grated 2 bars of soap, poured over boiling water and whisked it up - - not sure if it was right, but the children loved it the next morning.

 

but im def gonna try the cooked cornflour -sounds really cool !!

hello

gloop (magic dough) can be made with cornflour, water and salt, but our children are into ice cubes with added bits such as rosemary and leaves, conkers and acorns, they love jelly too to play with and runny custard.... very thin solution.....

Our latest attempts are ballon shaped ice eggs with glitter, sequins and food colouring so pretty and messy watch them melt as you slowly add barcarb and more colouring. soap bubbles and now instant snow are popular too! roll on messy play activities in the new year alwats trying something new.....
