Squishy Color

Trying to learn colors? Well here is a great sensory idea. Create a squishy bag. Here's what you will need: cornstarch, sugar, water, freezer Ziploc bags, food coloring, and Duct tape.

In a saucepan pour 1 C. cornstarch, 1/3 C. sugar, & 4 C. water. Cook over med. heat, stirring frequently. Mixture will become lumpy and then thicken into "Vaseline" looking substance. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Divide into 4-6 freezer Ziploc bags. Squirt in couple of drops of food coloring. Press out as much air as possible, seal the bags, cover the seal with a piece of duct tape to help prevent any spills. Kids will squeeze the colors around until it is fully mixed. The bags are a fun squishy feeling, without the mess. 

One other idea would be to teach secondary colors by creating 3 bags, one with red and blue food coloring, one with red and yellow food coloring, and one with blue and yellow. The kids can squish the colors around and see what happens.
