I would have never thought to use yogurt for silly putty! What an awesome idea!
It’s raining outside today, so the kids are a little down about not being able to play with their new Christmas toys (outside toys of course). So I decided to get a little bit creative! This is a fun activity that the kids can do and it literally gave them hours of fun this morning!
- Corn Starch
- Yogurt w/o fruit chunks
- Mix 1 cup of yogurt and a 3/4 cups of corn starch.
- Stir until complete mixed. Once mixed you can roll it into a ball.
Here are a couple of hints: If the putty is dry, add more yogurt too it (be careful not to add too much at one time). If the putty is extra stick or too wet, try adding more constarch. Once again only add a little bit at a time.
If you want to jazz things up a bit, add food coloring as well and make different colors of putty!
If you try this out, let me know how it goes in the comment box!
