DIY Silly Putty


1/4 cup glue
3/8 cup water (1/4 cup water plus 1/8 cup water)
1 tablespoon borax
Gel food dyes
paper cups
plastic eggs (to store silly putty)


Step 1

Mix together 1/4 cup glue and 1/4 cup water.
Add food coloring if you want colored Silly Putty.

Step 2

In a separate container, dissolve 1 tablespoon borax in 1/8 cup water.

Step 3

Stir the borax mixture and glue mixture together to make the putty. If the Silly Putty is too sticky, you can add more borax one teaspoon at a time to stiffen the mixture.
