My kids, especially my daughter, LOVE Slimes, Playdoughs and anything squishy and squelshy, so I am always looking for new recipes to keep them entertained! I recently had a Rainbow Party and had loads of Jelly left over so I made some wonderful Jelly Soap Foam. It was so much fun and smelt divine so I thought I would try my hand at some Jelly Silly Putty! It worked out a treat!
I have made Silly Putty before, as you can see here, it’s stretchy, oozy and super FUN and the kids love it! They love this Jelly Silly Putty too and I am super excited to share it with you!
To make your own you will need:
I bottle of Clear School Glue (147ml)
The same amount of water (147ml)
1/2 teaspoon of Borax (I bought mine at Bunnings Hardware store for $8)
1/2 cup hot water
2tbs Jelly Crystals
Pour your glue into a bowl
Fill the same bottle with water and add to the glue
Stir until well combined
In a separate cup add approximately 2 tbs of Jelly Crystals
Add 1/2 cup of hot water and stir until dissolved
Pour out 1/4 a cup of this mixture (we want to keep 1/4 of a cup of the mixure only – you can discard the rest or use it for your next batch!)
Pour the 1/4 cup of Jelly solution into a separate container
Add 1/2 of a teaspoon of Borax and mix well
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, beautifully smelling, sensory Jelly/Jello Silly Putty!

I’ve had our Silly Putty stored in a zip lock bag for two weeks now & it’s still going strong! This would make a fantastic gift for school friends or to take to kindy for the kids to play with!
*Please note that Borax is not edible so please make sure that anything including Borax stays away from little mouths and tummies!
