Silly Putty - Homemade

Here's a quick and easy project that's lots of fun.  This homemade silly putty, gunk, or goo needs only common ingredients, and kids can help you make it.


1 cup of white glue like ElmersŪ
1 cup of liquid starch
Food Coloring (optional)

Put a few drops of the food coloring and glue in a large plastic bowl.  Add the starch a little at a time while stirring continuously.  The mixture will come together like putty.  It it's too sticky, add more liquid starch in small amounts until you get a smooth, rubbery texture.  Then start having fun!
