This is a really simple activity where children can enjoy the sensory exploration of gloop. Gloop is really easy to make and it just contains cornflour and water and food colouring if you wish. It is really important to add little bits of water at a time whilst mixing the gloop to ensure it becomes the right consistency. This allows children to explore their sense of smell, touch and also sight when playing with the gloop and allowing it to run (or melt as some of our children say!) through their fingers. Gloop can also be rolled between your hands if your quick enough to create a ball before it begins to run
Wallsend Day Nursery
Wallsend Day Nursery is a childcare provider based in heart of Wallsend Town Centre, in the former Wallsend Library Building on Ferndale Avenue. We provide childcare 5 days per week and 51 weeks of the year to children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. We also offer a holiday club for older children during school holidays, and we work closely with nearby schools where children may be attending nursery part time both with ourselves and with the school. Our project is called Wallsend Day Nursery in the Community. During the project, over a period of 6 months, we will be creating helpful videos for local families, to support them both to learn and play, and interact with their children at home.
