Chia Goop

This easy chia goop sensory play experience is great for infants and toddlers who like to put everything in their mouths.

Materials Needed:

  • ¼ cup white chia seeds whole
  • 1 ¾ cups water
  • food colouring as needed


  • Pour chia seeds into a bowl or container.
  • Add water and mix with a spoon.
  • Add a few drops of food colouring and mix some more, until the colour is visible throughout.
  • Cover the bowl or container and place it in the fridge. Let the chia seeds soak for 3-4 hours until they develop a thick, slimy texture. Then, give the mixture to your child to play with!

Hints and Tips:

  • White chia seeds can be replaced with black chia seeds, but the colours won’t be as vibrant.
