Silly Putty Experiment

So Ephraim wanted Silly Putty, we went to Toys R Us and lo and behold they didn’t carry it, the knock off brand they did carry didn’t last the car ride home. I told Ephraim we might be able to make some so I found this recipe.  

Ephraim and Joshua emptying the contents of two 4oz bottles of Elmer.

We add the warm water a few drops of blue food coloring.

As soon as Talitha started to add the Borax mixture the blue liquid got really cool,
and everyone had to put their hands in it!

It was/is so cool and though not like silly putty was fun to play with!

Robby is wearing his helmet because he went to the quickee mart all on his own!!
Very first time and he was so proud to bring us the much needed Elmer’s glue!

    Wow, Robby is growing up so fast! They all are…I still remember cute little Talitha saying, “I Talitha, what your name?”. 🙂 They are all such sweethearts! Much love and blessings! Love Always, Catheryn
