Sensory Glitter Goo
If you don’t happen to have extra glue and liquid starch, you can also make fun glitter goo with boxes of baking soda ($1 each) and water. Baking soda is an bacteria-resistant medium that’s fun to squish and squeeze when mixed with water!
If you want to make this sensory glitter goo more malleable, mix in 1 cup of hair conditioner until fully blended and doughy.
- 3 boxes of baking soda
- 1 cup water (add more as needed)
- 1 cup hair conditioner (optional)
Mix ingredients together until fully combined and add glitter, beads, and tiny treasures! Store in an air-tight container.
