We have been reading the book Slime. In the story Ned finds 100s of jars of gunk in his sisters room. One of our tasks last week was to make our own gunk. Today we finally got to make it.

There were things like cornflour, hair gel, washing powder, soap, dish liquid, food colouring and sand used to make all kinds of different gunks.

This type of playful learning helps the children foster the key competencies. While they were building the gunk they had to make decisions, share equipment and ideas with others. They needed to be creative and use their imagination about what gunk may be made from.

Watch this space for their gunk recipes.

Below are some photos of the gunk making process.
