The Red House Nursery


Activity for children 0-2 years old.

Equipment needed: corn flour, water, food colouring and rice.

Discover mark making by using gloop, mix corn flour and water together to make a sticky mixture. Let babies play with it then add food colouring to change colour and rice to add texture. Babies can touch and make marks with the gloop. This is messy but simple exercise to see how your baby really does want to explore their environment. At The Red House, we see children copying each other’s movements and exploration while at the same time developing their own.

This activity will help babies to respond to what they see, smell touch and feel.
