Remember Doing This?


glue (wood glue works well but white glue will work too)
Epsom salts
measuring spoons
plastic spoon
2 small cups
waxed paper
plastic bag (optional)


1. In one cup, put 1/2 tsp Epsom salt and 1/2 tsp water, stir to dissolve salt. (NOTE: It may not all dissolve.)

2. In the other cup, put 1 tablespoon glue. Add the Epsom salt water to the glue and stir.

3. Watch as your new material starts to form. Pull out the putty and put it on the waxed paper. You can experiment with it to find out more about its properties.

4. You can store the new putty in a plastic bag.
