With the advent of Pinterest, homemade play recipes seem to be gaining some serious popularity with good reason of course. With the abundance of play recipes at a click of a mouse, making slime, play dough, goop, gunk, gak or whatever the next sensory material is that easy. Moms, teachers and caretakers have been sharing some super cool sensory and art recipes with all of us. One ingredient which has become quite common is the good old cornstarch.
Note: Cornstarch in U.S is the same as cornflour in U.K
Here is our small collection of some fun play recipes with cornstarch as their primary ingredient.
