This sparkly silly putty is an amazing recipe that will be sure to engage, delight and indulge the most inquisitive minds! It’s a FUN mix of science and play, with a little LOVE thrown in the mix! Perfect to help celebrate Valentine’s Day.
We used the same recipe as used for our Frozen Silly Putty found here –
To make your own you will need:
- 1 bottle of Clear School Glue (147ml)
- The same amount of water (147 ml)
- 1/2 teaspoon of Borax (I bought mine from my local hardware store in the cleaning section for $8)
- 1/2 cup hot water
- A few sprinkles of silver glitter
- love heart sequins for extra bling
Pour your glue into a bowl
Fill the same bottle with water and add to the glue
Stir until well combined
Add a few sprinkles of the glitter & sequins & give it another good stir
In a separate cup, add 1/2 cup of hot water
Add 1/2 a teaspoon of the Borax to the water and stir until dissolved
Pour this solution into your original bowl with the glue and water
This is the best part! Stir and watch the magic happen! Doesn’t it look cool! It may take you a few minutes to make sure it’s all combined properly
Enjoy this fun, sensory activity!
We think this would make a great Valentine’s Day activity OR just a fun and sparkly activity to brighten your child’s day. Sensory play and exploration at it’s best.
