Published June 04, 2010        by Rae Ann

Kids Slime & Silly Putty RecipesIf you're looking for something fun to do on a rainy day, how about roll up your sleeves and get a little messy?

Below are some great recipes that kids can make, with a little help from an adult.  Smooshy Gooshy Goo is just a few ingredients away!



8 oz bottle of glue
8 oz water
1 cup water
1 1/2 tsp borax powder


Pour 8 oz bottle of glue into bowl. Fill empty bottle with water and add to the glue - stir constantly. If you want to add a color, add a few drops of food coloring to this part of the mixture.

In another bowl, stir together 1 cup of water and 1 1/2 tsp of borax powder until dissolved.

Mix the 2 bowls together - Instantly they will become slime! Working it with your hands to make it a little more stiff.

To make this "noise" putty put in a small container, then stick your fingers through the putty, it makes some "interesting" noises!

Keep in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Silly Putty


2 cups white glue
1 cup liquid starch


Mix together with hands. Keep kneading until it forms a silly putty ball. Will take a few minutes of kneading before the wetness goes away.

If it is wet and starch is not bonding, add more glue. If it is sticky, add more starch. Keep kneading until it forms a silly putty ball.

Store in an air tight container in refrigerator.
