Silly Putty

IMG_6548Silly Putty

3/4 cup Elmer’s white glue

1/2 cup liquid starch

Food coloring

Directions: Put glue in bowl and slowly add starch. Knead with your hands. Add food coloring to make different colors. You need to knead it for a long time. Just when you think you ruined it and it won’t turn out it starts to form the putty. Store in a baggie for continued play.

Warnings about silly putty from website:

1) Keep away from cloth surfaces. Putty sticks to clothing and cannot easily be removed.

2)Avoid swallowing the putty. The ingredients aren’t edible.

3)Some do-it-yourself silly putty recipes call for the use of borax. Be aware that borax has been deemed “toxic for reproduction” and is on the EU’s Substance of Very High Concern (SVHC) list.[2]
