Silly Putty is a classic and timeless source of entertainment for children of all ages, and even some adults! Double the fun by letting the kids make the putty as well, using these simple steps:

Supplies:

  • Elmer’s Glue-All multipurpose glue
  • Food coloring
  • Sta-Flo concentrated liquid starch
  • Glass mixing bowl
  • Large metal spoon

*For this project use equal parts of glue and starch, so if you use 1 cup of glue then use 1 cup of starch. As to the food coloring, use enough to make your desired color.

Directions:

In mixing bowl add glue and food coloring mix with large metal spoon until your color is even. Next pour liquid starch into the colored glue mixture and mix well. Let it sit for about 5 minutes. Pull the putty out of the mixing bowl and knead in your hands for 5 to ten minutes. It is very important to knead it well in your hands once the starch is thoroughly mixed in. If it is a little to rubbery add a little more glue.

And for a little extra fun for the kids, you can store the putty in pull apart plastic Easter eggs!
