Silly Putty This recipe calls for TWO (that’s IT) ingredients. I love that! You will need: white, multi purpose glue (I used Elmer’s – 1 cup) liquid starch (I used Sta-Flo – 1/2 cup) optional: food coloring *You can make more/less putty than we did – just stick to a “2 parts glue, 1 part starch” combo to achieve optimal putty.
Homemade silly putty is both a great kids activity and a science project! After playing with silly putty at engineering camp this week my kids wanted to play with it at home too. We decided to make some homemade silly putty using items we already had at home.
Two Ingredient-Homemade Silly Putty (color optional). Remember getting a tiny blob of this stuff as a child? Make it at home in larger quantities for hours of sensory play. It lasts for months when stored in an air tight container.
The secret ingredient that makes the putty magnetic is an iron oxide powder, which is ferric (magnetic). Ferric iron oxide is a fine powder used as black pigment and can be found at art stores. If your local artist supply store doesn't carry it, you can always purchase it online.
