Gluten Free Silly Putty

Here is a fabulous Gluten Free Silly Putty recipe that my kids love to make.  We always appreciate gluten free crafts and activities, so here is one for your craft box! 

Silly Putty - (Grade - Great/Good) Not edible ~ Adult supervision is strongly recommended.

1 cup water
6 Tbsp Mule Team Borax
1/2 cup (4 oz bottle) white school glue
optional: food coloring

1.) Pour 1/2 cup water into a small bowl. Add the Borax and stir until dissolved. Set aside.

2.) Pour the other 1/2 cup of water in a medium-sized glass or metal bowl. Add the glue and stir until combined. Optional: add food coloring and stir to achieve the desired color.

3.) Pour the Borax mixture into the glue mixture. Knead with hands until most of the water is absorbed and the putty can form a ball in your hands. Lift the putty from the bowl and discard the remaining water mixture. Return the putty to the bowl and allow to sit, uncovered for 15-20 minutes or until fairly firm.

4.) Store any unused silly putty in an airtight container.
