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!
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!
