Day 335: Fun Putty

Once you start playing with this putty, you won’t want to put it down!

This recipe calls for 1 Tbsp liquid starch, 2 Tbsp glue, and a few drops of food coloring. You’ll also need two small bowls and a spoon.

Put the liquid starch into one small bowl, and then mix the glue and food coloring together in the other small bowl. Pour the colored glue mixture into the bowl with the liquid starch. After about 5 minutes (or until the glue absorbs the liquid starch) take the mixture out of the bowl, and start kneading it. It will be slimy and stringy at first, but as your child kneads it, it will become soft and pliable and stay together very well. Store in a zip-top bag.
