Summer Craft: Magic Mud

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

You won’t believe how simple it is to make this unbelievably entertaining goop! Two household ingredients come together to form a magical combination that’s sometimes difficult to tell whether it’s liquid or solid. It can get messy, but for easy clean-up you can let kids play with it in the tub just before bath time or outside on a hot day before hosing them off. 

Supplies:

  • Corn Starch
  • Water

Directions:

  • Use about 5 tablespoons of corn starch and about an equal amount of water or more and mix. 
  • Pour into a shallow dish and play with it. 
  • The magic mud is goopy liquid but hardens when you poke it. 
  • Use cars to drive through it or put plastic bugs in it.
