Funny Putty

  • 2 cups white glue (regular, not school glue)
  • 2 teaspoons Borax
  • Water

Mix the borax with 1/3 cup water, dissolving well. In another bowl, mix the glue and 3/4 cup water. You can also add a few drops of food coloring. Stir well and add in the borax/water mixture. Amazingly, the putty will clot. Knead together, leaving any excess water that forms in the bowl.

This weird stuff will pick up the print off cartoons from the newspaper. It has a strange oozy effect when placed in small molds and containers. Plastic forks are fun to use to make impressions, because the impressions will disappear.

Store in a ziplock bag, releasing the air. It will last 2-3 weeks.
