Try It Tuesday

I’ve been seeing a lot of DIY sensory play in my Pinterest feed lately (probably because of the glitter bottles I made a few weeks back. Which, by the way, worked like a charm!) so I decided to try another one!

Yogurt-Silly-Putty-long

 

Its homemade silly putty! Here’s what you need:

~Corn starch

 

That’s it! Oh, and a willing assistant to test said putty. Which, I had on hand:

Start with a cup of yogurt and 3/4 cup corn starch. Mix together. If its still sticky, keep adding corn starch. If its too grainy, add more yogurt. Keep doing this until you reach the desired consistency.

I wasn’t able to take any pictures of the process because corn starch is the devil and it gets everywhere and makes you lose your mind because of its ability to cling to clothes/hands/the floor/everything within a 2-mile radius until your home looks like Tony Montana’s desk in Scarface.

But, finally, I got the consistency I wanted!

It kept my little assistant busy for a hot minute while I unloaded/re-loaded the dishwasher. She really enjoyed it when I got out a few cookie cutters.

 

When she lost interest, I put it into a gallon sized Ziploc bag. THEN it was enjoyable for Momma. Mostly because it felt like a stress ball, lol. That’s when I thought, “Hey! This might be a good sensory play-type thing for kids! They can squish this together and keep their little hands busy!”

All in all, it wasn’t my favorite Try It, but definitely not my least favorite! Have you ever tried this? What were your results? Share in the comments below!
