Conversation Hearts Goop! Some messy gooey Valentine’s Day fun! These candy hearts make for perfect Valentine’s early learning play! We have used them for a quick color sorting game, observation science, and in our love potion #9! This time we made a great science sensory activity of goopy candy heart slime or sometimes called oobleck!
Valentine's Day Candy Hearts Slime
Goop is a pretty amazing sensory experience! Is it a liquid or a solid? Or is it Both?!

Oobleck is what is called a non-Newtonian Fluid. When pressure is exerted on it like squishing it or scooping it up, it acts like a solid. When there is no pressure exerted on it, it flows like a liquid. Scoop it up with a spoon like a solid and watch as it slowly melts off the spoon like a liquid. Amazing!

Items Needed for Conversation Hearts Goopy Slime:

  • Cornstarch
  • Water
  • Conversation Hearts

That’s it. Nothing extensive or complicated. Just two simple items that most of you probably already have at home!

How to Make Candy Hearts Goopy Slime:

{Printable recipe below}

To make conversation hearts slime mix a 2:1 ratio of cornstarch to water: 2 cups cornstarch, 1 cup water.

It should not begin to crumble like crunchy foam sensory dough and it shouldn’t be a runny liquid that cannot hold any shape.

Transfer to a kid’s crafting tray or shallow bowl for exploring and playing. Add your candy hearts and tools. Get set for some cool science!
