Homemade Play Putty

By Amy M. O’Quinn

Everyone loves playing with Silly Putty! But did you know you can make a ‘homemade’ version—in a single serving, no less? Experiment with different food colorings, and create play putty in a rainbow of colors! It’s easy and inexpensive.

Here’s how:

1. Into a glass bowl, add 2 T. white glue, 2 drops food coloring, and 2 T. liquid
starch on top.

2. Scrape the sides of the bowl to incorporate all of the glue.

3. Let the mixture stand for at least five minutes.

4. Knead the play putty until all the ingredients are blended well.

In about 24 hours, the putty will bounce and stretch! Store in a plastic zipper bag and HAVE FUN!
