Silly Putty

This putty is rubbery and stretchy and bounces like a ball. It picks up print from newspaper comics just like the kind you get at the store!


1 Tbls. liquid starch

Food coloring

2 Tbls. white glue

Small plastic easter egg or a zippered plastic bag

Mix white glue and food coloring together in a small bowl. Pour liquid starch into a second small bowl. Slowly pour the glue mixture on top of the liquid starch. Allow the mixture to stand for 5 minutes or until the glue absorbs the liquid starch. Remove putty from bowl and knead (At first this mixture may look as if its messed up, but it's not. The more you knead the putty, the better the consistency will be). Store the putty in a plastic easter egg or zippered plastic bag. This makes enough putty for one child.
