Silly Putty

How many ‘Frozen’ fans do I have out there? Well, I have a little one that is quite the admirer to the movie. With summer in full swing we decided that for my second Kids Summer Activities we would teach you how to make ‘Frozen’ Silly Putty! It is a bunch of fun and it so easy to make! We have two tutorials for you: one for everyones favorite Elsa and another for Anna.

Here is a quick and easy way to make ‘Frozen’ Silly Putty!

  • 1/2 tsp Borax
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 3/4 water (use a little under 3/4)
  • 1 bottle clear school glue (we used half of the 9 oz. bottle per silly putty, if you use the 5 oz. use the whole bottle per silly putty)
  • Box of food coloring (make sure there is blue and red)
  • Glitter (we bought a combo pack of 12 small packs of colored glitter and two big containers of gold and silver)
  • Large mixing bowl
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Jar or ziplock bag
