2 cups water
1/2 cup cornstarch
Boil water in saucepan. Add cornstarch and stir until smooth. Add food coloring and stir — adjust the amount of food coloring until you get the color you want. Remove from heat and cool. Let your child squish away.
Owen wasn’t a huge fan of the texture so he didn’t dive in with his hands like I thought he would. But he loved “baking” with it. It’s also safe if your little one gets carried away with his/her pretend cooking and decides to sample it.
When we was done with that I put it in a ziploc baggie and he loved squishing it in the bag.
