This is one of the easiest activities to set up cornflour slime and very cheap so you can do it fairly often if your toddler enjoys it. This is a favourite activity of parents and teacher around the world. It's popular because it is incredibly easy to make and there are no nasty chemicals and nothing your toddler will experience before. This activity is great for introducing your toddler to the concept of solids and fluids because unlike most fluids when you apply pressure the mixture acts like a solid...fascinating! You can also mix it up by adding food colouring and throw in a few plastic toys and just watch them play.
