Fun Putty...

Here's a great, quick activity that will leave your Kid Scientists entertained all afternoon!

Ages: Big Kids can do this on their own but Little Kids may need help with measuring

Materials: Sta-Flo starch, Elmer's glue, food coloring, glass bowl, air tight container
Procedure:  Mix equal parts starch and glue in a bowl until you have a nice putty.  You may need to add drops of one or the other to achieve a nice mix.  Add food coloring to achieve the color you want.

The putty can be stored in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.
