Making Goo with kids is a fun activity that they can do at home. Our kids loved patting, stretching, blowing and playing with this Goo. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.
Our little son enjoys doing Science Experiments so much that I eventually bought a book to help with some new ideas. We go this Mason Jar Science book that has a ton of Mason Jar experiments ideas. One of the ideas is making Goo. Goo is like slime but much stickier & slimier. However, since the kids don’t enjoy the sticky feeling as much, we opted to make the Goo a little less slimy for easier play.

Playing with Goo
Blowing through slime is one of our little boy’s favorite slime activities. As a result, he decided to try it with Goo. It was a success; the girls started to blow through their Goo too. Our kids loved patting, stretching, blowing and playing with this Goo for a good while. They even used play cakes, pasted the top of them with the goo, then used toy animal figurines to as decorations for their cakes.
How to Make Goo with Kids
