Hey there! Scarlett came over a few days ago and we made silly putty! It was a lot of fun. Some of the stuff we made was really stretchy! LOL (See last picture!) we took some and slowly started stretching it! It got soo long! It was a ton of fun!
Here's the recipe in case any of you want to try it!
4 cups water
2 tsp.s 20 Mule Borax
mix together in bowl
2-3 Tbsp. liquid school glue (or more if you want more but you don't need a lot)
Food coloring!!! (Whatever color you want, but I suggest not mixing colors unless you want to end up with brown)
Mix the food coloring with the glue thoroughly. Pour glue mixture into the Borax water and then use your hands to mix the glue stuff together. (Keep it in the water.) When it finally sticks together, take it out and have fun! We like to keep it in Easter Eggs, but whatever you want would work.Plastic bags etc. (Warning: After a while ((a week or two, maybe three)) the putty will get very sticky and gooey, and will make a big mess! At that point it simply needs to be thrown out!)
