Squidgy, Sticky, Squelchy Gloop

The Tigers reading group made gloop!

To make gloop you will need the following ingredients
2 cups of PVA glue
1/2 cup of cold water
Food colouring
2 tablespoons of soap flakes

1 cup of boiling water

Step 1 Mix the cold water with the glue and food colouring in a bowl.

Step 2 Melt soap flakes in boiling water

Step 3 Mixed the soapy mixture into the glue mixture and mix until the gloop is thick To make our gloop we got into groups of two.

We had a great time, here are some of our thoughts on our gloop.

Kingston L and Ashleigh decided to make green here are some of there thoughts on gloop... We made gloop! The gloop looked like goody, goody gumdrop ice cream. Our gloop was so soft it felt like fur. It looked like bubblegum but it smelt disgusting like wasabi. The fork we used to mix it was about to break while we mixed. It took ages to harden up. It started to plop off the mixing fork. We like making gloop.

Gabriel and Makayla decided they should make purple gloop and this is how they felt about it...
Our gloop liked grape ice-cream or maybe wildberry yogurt. It smelt like soap. It felt smidgey and squishy. As it got harder we thought our fork would snap. We can't wait until we can play with our gloop. I want to make a plane (Gribriel) and I want to make a teddy bear out of it (Makayla).

Brooke and Darius decided to make red gloop. This is what they thought of their gloop...
It looked like strawberry ice-cream or a smoothie or yogurt. It smelt disgusting like a broken air freshener. It looked slimey like a snail. It looked like pinked creamed rice. When you touch it, it feels sticky and sluggy and soft at the same time. We like gloop!

What a fun activity that was Room 11 Tigers. I have really enjoyed reading this post and looking at your pictures. I particularly enjoyed reading your descriptions of the process you went through. I have to say that I was wondering about who had to clean up the hall kitchen after that!

Hi there Tigers!
Making gloop looks like so much fun. We've made gloop but using different things. Did it take a long time to make your gloop? Were some of you tempted to eat it since it looked like strawberry ice-cream?

Hey Room 11 Tigers,

Looks and sounds like you all had a lot of fun. I enjoyed looking at the photos and reading the interesting descriptions about the gloop.
