Let’s make silly putty!

Who say’s art cant be fun? We sure know how to make it fun. We incorporated this into our homeschooling day and the kids had so much fun.

What do you need?

  • Water
  • food coloring
  • borax
  • glue
  • sealed container (for storage)

Step 1: Gather your supplies


Step 2: Mix together 1/4 cup glue and 1/4 cup water.

Step 3: (optional) Add food coloring, a few drops at a time until you’ve reached your desired color.

Step 4: In a separate container, dissolve 1 tablespoon borax in 1/8 cup water.

Step 5: Stir the borax mixture and glue mixture together.


It’s ok to get a little messy, that’s what makes it more fun!

Step 6: Enjoy!

Don’t worry Raspberry didn’t eat it she was just being funny.
