Now that my kids are older they are able to find their own entertainment most of the time. Yesterday my 11 year old son wanted to make silly putty so he looked it up online. We had all of the ingredients, so he made some with his 8 year old sister. I had nothing to do with this project. They found the video online, found all of the ingredients, made the putty, and cleaned up the mess. Today they are playing with their silly putty and having lots of fun with it. The best part is that I didn't have to do anything.
To make this silly putty you need:
Elmer's glue (or other brand)
Food coloring (optional)
Note: When they are not playing with their silly putty they keep it in Ziploc bags so it doesn't dry out.
Here is the video my son found:

My kids have been "hooked" on this silly putty all week long. It has entertained them every day and for that I am "hooked" on silly putty.
I am joining Julia's Hooked on Friday's blog party. Check out her blog to see what other people are hooked on and for a stroll down memory lane if you ever read Nancy Drew as a kid.
