So I have been slowly stumbling on different recipes to make Theraputty!!! And even though they may not be perfect ... (it goes a bit stiff - a bit too quick for my liking) It is doing the job .. until the real Theraputty arrives in the post that is...

So we spent a day doing science experiments & crazy stuff!!! Here is some of our FUN!!!  Anyway .. here is the recipe .... so far soo good ... 

Theraputty Ingredients
2 cups of white glue (craft glue/pva etc)
1 cup of liquid starch (Can be powdered stuff and mix it up / some IGA stores sell it)
Food Colouring (whatever colour your heart desires)


In a large mixing bowl, pour 1 cup of glue followed by by 1/2 cup of starch. Mix ingredients thoroughly. 

Add the remaining glue, liquid starch and food colouring if you want a specific color. Let the mixture dry for approximately 15 to 20 minutes so that it becomes workable. 

After the time has passed, the mixture should still feel wet. Add more glue or cornstarch as needed until you get the right texture. 

Once the therapy putty is workable, start to pull the mixture away from your body in long strands. Repeat this process several times. 

When the putty begins to pop and snap like silly putty (make farting noises - as described by boogie), you have reached the proper texture. Store in an airtight container so as not to dry it out!!!  

Basically it is just one of thousands of recipes that I stumbled across on google ... they all seem to be pretty similar .. But this is the consistency that worked for us!! ENJOY xx
