Whether you’re a mom of toddlers or a preschool teacher, there are just some sensory recipes you have to know and goop is one of them! This Goop Recipe is going to become a fun staple in your home.
Sensory Goop Recipe
Sensory goop is such a favorite! For kids that seek out sensory sensations (or a tactile seekers), this goop recipe is going to become a favorite. When I get my hands on goop, I just can’t stop playing with it. It feels SO good!
I also have a kiddo that is tactile defensive — which means he doesn’t like to get his hands messy. If you have a child like this, goop can be a good way to start getting used to tactile sensations. Just don’t expect them to jump right in.
A great way of introducing defensive kids to goop is to give them tools to manipulate the goop. Trust me, a tactile defensive kid won’t just grab the goop and play. Give them tools to manipulate the goop to start with and let them decide where to go from there.
Note! Please make sure you supervise your children while playing. This goop is for external use only, as this does contain a small amount of cleaning product. This post contains affiliate links.
