It’s time to create a substance that would blow Einstein’s mind! Defying the laws of physics, this extraordinary goop is the easiest and most exciting experiment that children of all ages have enjoyed creating for many years. With just a few basic ingredients this creation can make any rainy or boring day come to life. Is it a liquid or is it a solid? I guess it’s time to find out…

Step 1: Collect Supplies

You will need:

  • 1 Bowl
  • 1 Spoon
  • Food Coloring of any color
  • 1 cup of Corn Starch
  • 1/3 cup of Water
  • 1 cup measuring cup
  • 1/3 cup measuring cup
  • 1 zip lock bag
  • Clean, flat working environment that can get a little messy
* Note: The brand of cornstarch and food coloring is not important to the end result.

<p>Add 1 cup vinager. </p>
<p>Cassie Hollister on Youtube did this with her nephew. </p>
<p>that is why I got my account on th</p>
<p>yes we all know that?????</p>
<p>I want to eat it</p>
<p>i did this in school its called ooblec</p>
<p>You spelt Zip wrong. I had to tell you.</p>
<p>Spelt is a grain, not a word. The word is spelled. I had to tell you.</p>
<p>lol. Such troll, many laughs.</p>
<p>1/3 cup of water didn't work for us. Ended up with clumps of colored cornstarch powder balls. Added 1/3 cup of more water, and presto - perfect! </p>
<p>Awesome messy project my son really enjoyed fun for our entire family actually thanks</p>
We found the pictures valuable. We like that they are close up and there is very little distracting in the background. They were very specific, however several pictures were redundant. For example in step 2, there was a picture measuring the cornstarch followed by a picture of that cornstarch in the bowl. The second picture is unnecessary. This same idea relates to steps 2, 3 and 4. <br> <br>Your gutters are too obvious. Using fewer pictures would still be successful. <br> <br>We appreciate that your steps were broken up into smaller steps, instead of one large block of text. The instructions overall were very short and specific. We feel as though we could successfully make Goop. <br> <br>Good job!
<p>Good Lord Emily.dunn!!! I certainly hope people don't disect you the way you have scrutinized these instructions!!!! Quite certainly you wouldn't appreciate such harsh critiquing upon any of your endeavours!!!!</p><p>Thank you for a fabulous messy project to which my daughter enjoyed immensely!!!!!</p>
<p>very cool! I will have to try this</p>
<p>it was awesome</p>
<p>idiotsare4real should we do this goop thing for school project.</p>
<p>This goop is very fun to play with. In the bowl it becomes a kind of a <br>solid seprated from the water and when you pick up the goop it turns <br>liquid.It is very fascinating to see the matter changes. And if you add a <br>Tbs of oil it will give it extra gloss and smoothness.</p>
Pros <br> 1. Pictures are sequential <br> 2. Ingredients and Materials <br> 3. Gave good background information <br>Cons <br> 1. Unnecessary/Repetitive pictures and information <br> 2. Last steps get wordy and have too much detail <br> 3. Formatting issues with step&acirc;€™s title and overelaborating the <br> information that followed. <br>
Overall, the instructions were highly repetitive which caused some confusion and made them hard to follow. The basic content and structure was present but a few more edits to remove the non-essential information would have improved the instructions.
