    Recipe Introduction

    During WWII, General Electric tried to make a cheap substitute for rubber. A company engineer came up with a compound he called "nutty putty", but nobody know what to do with it. In 1949, Paul Hodgson saw some "nutty putty" at a party. He bought some putty, separated it into half-ounce balls, and sold it inside colored plastic eggs as Silly Putty. When it outsold every other item in his toy store, he mass produced Silly Putty as "the toy with one moving part".

    Silly Putty

    Great Fun for the Kids!

    1/4 cup white glue
    1/4 cup liquid starch


    Work with your hands until it is the consistency of putty. You may need to add more glue, if the texture doesn't act like silly putty in its elasticity.

    THIS may stick on their clothes, so put bibs or aprons on the children when they are playing with it!
