Homemade Silly Putty

I thought Silly Putty was the coolest thing when I was little and my friends and I used to play with it for hours! I bet you did too. It is really easy to make and cheap too. You only need 3 ingredients! (Four if you count the H2O). This is such a fun project for you and your kids to do together and perfect for any lazy indoor craft day.
It’s easy just to 5 minutes, the kids having fun, and is a great plan for rainy days.
You will see how the liquids together to form a solid! this love to children, educate and have fun .. anything else? I think not …
