Peculiar Putty

One year, when my children were small, we made Peculiar Putty. As I recall, it was similar to Silly Putty, but more fluid. It has been well over 10 years since I’ve made this, so don’t quote me on that! I’m no longer certain where the recipe came from, either.

Peculiar Putty

  • 1 cup white school glue
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp Borax
  • 1/2 cup water

You will need two bowls.

  1. In one of the bowls, stir together the white glue and about 3/4 cup of water.
  2. In the second bowl, stir 1/2 cup water and Borax together.
  3. Stir the Borax mixture into the glue mixture. Continue to stir until all the glue mixture is absorbed. This will take several minutes.
  4. Allow the mixture to stand for an hour or so and it’s ready to play with. Pull on it, flatten it, roll it into a ball and bounce it!
