"It's so easy to make"
"Use simple ingredients"
"easy fun with kids"
Ok. As a little "whilst Grandad is cooking dinner" project I thought C and I would make some silly putty. I got my cup of liquid starch and my cup of glue, all ready for C to pour into the plastic tub to mix and produce our silly putty. What ACTUALLY happened was after a few mins (seconds?) of "mix, mix, mix" C decided to embark on her own sensory play and smeared the (very) sticky (very) liquid "stuff" on the dining table. Hmmmm, not such a clever before-dinner project after all.
After dinner, whilst Grandad took C for her bath I was NOT going to be defeated and decided to start again, adding a bit of one then a bit of the other - whilst whisking furiously with the electric beaters. I wanted to make Silly Putty. But what I actually have is about the 4 litres of glue/liquid starch mix in varying containers and in varying strengths of glue/starch.

Do not try this at home!!! Or, if you have and have actually made the stuff ppleeeeaaaasssseeeee let me in on your secret.
Alternatively, if you know of a use for 4 litres of glue/liquid starch mix then do email me, I have some you can take off my hands.
