Goo Monsters!

June 11, 2015|Posted in: Happy, Healthy, Smart Kids!, Uncategorized

 

PicsArt (3)Oooy Gooy sweet sticky monsters!  They’re edible too!!  This is a fun and very simple activity that kids love!  It doesn’t require a lot of supplies and it only costs pennies so moms love it too.

Here’s What You Need:

Corn Syrup

Food Coloring

Popsicle Stick

Google Eyes

Small Jars

 

FullSizeRender (27)Here’s what you do:

Pour a small amount of corn syrup into a small empty jar.

Add a couple of drops of your favorite color food coloring.

Mix the color in with a Popsicle stick.

Add one or two or three google eyes!

Tighten the lid on top of the jar.

 

Kids will love to swirl their monsters around in the jars and watch them change shapes and ogle at them with their googley eyes!  We also poured some of the goo on a plate and used Popsicle sticks to make monster shapes before we added their eyes.  The monsters taste yummy and sweet too.  Don’t be surprised if fingers and Popsicle sticks get licked or maybe even a monster gets gobbled up!

Caution:  Google eyes are not edible of course, so don’t use them with small children.  You could use eyes made from royal frosting and then your monsters would be completely edible.  Have fun!!
