Funny Putty


1 tablespoon liquid starch,
food coloring,
2 tablespoons white glue,
a plastic egg or small Ziploc bag


- Mix glue and food coloring together in a small bowl.

- Pour liquid starch into a second bowl,
Then slowly pour the glue mixture on top of the starch.

- Allow the concoction to stand for 5 minutes or until the
glue absorbs the starch.

- Remove putty from the bowl and knead. (At first, the
mixture looks as if it's a mistake, but it isn't. The more
you knead the putty, the better the consistency will be.)

- Store funny putty in a plastic egg or Ziploc bag.

- Press funny putty down on newspaper comics or
pictures printed on inkjet paper.

- Slowly pull the funny putty off of the paper.

- The picture will transfer BACKWARDS onto the putty.

- You can also roll your funny putty into a ball and
bounce it.
