Possibly the best toddler art group ever was hosted by Iver (above) and her mom earlier this month. They made feelie goop (2 cups cornstarch mixed with 1 cup water) which feels solid to the touch, but will pour through your fingers.
It is lots of fun to explore!
The kids added food coloring
and mixed and played
with hands and tools.
Here it was dribbled to create a feelie goop drawing on the driveway.
This was a great outdoor activity combined with chalk drawing and water play. The toddlers and a five-year-old sibling tag-along had so much fun--it was easily the best toddler art group in a long time!
Feelie Goop is one of the activities from MaryAnn Kohl's First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos. It's also actually the very first one I tried from the book with a one-year-old Maia and a neighbor's toddler, so it brings back good memories and simultaneously reminds me of how far we've come (and all the art we've done over the years!).
