How to make Silly Putty

Introduced in the late fifties on the "Howdy Doody Show", and made a trip to space on the Apollo 8. Whether you are a child or an adult that never grew up, silly putty will offer hours of fun. It can be used for bouncing, taking impressions off of newspapers or can be used for art by making sculptures with it. Silly Putty or Silly Puddy as some pronounce it, is easy to make.

2 parts Elmer's Glue-All
1 Part Liquid Starch

Optional: Food Coloring. Make your silly putty any color you want.

Pour starch slowly over the glue and mix. If it is too sticky you can add more starch. Cover and refrigerate overnight. It may need to dry out a bit before you can use it.

Store in an air tight container or plastic bag.

If you can't find liquid starch, it can be found in the laundry aisle of the grocery store.
