Homemade Silly Putty
1 cup Elmers school glue (this type of glue works the best)
1/2 cup liquid starch
optional- food coloring and or glitter
Put 1/2 cup liquid starch into the bowl. Now add the glue. Be sure to keep the ratio exactly 1 cup glue to 1/2 cup starch as it can get too sticky. Now mix it all together. This stage takes awhile; keep mixing and mixing until it "Comes Together"! Now add food coloring and/or glitter. Once it is together enough to handle knead it by hand. If it feels too sticky just add a little more starch. Now is when you add the food coloring and or glitter.Now add ust keep mixing and eventually it will come together.Just keep mixing and eventually it will come together.
