I found out recently that you can make your own silly putty at home! WHAT?! Fantastic!! Ok, so...it's not quite silly putty, but it is still really cool. To see how to make it, check it out here.

My nephew and I still had loads of fun with it. One of the things I liked about it was Gabriel was able to help me make pretty much the whole thing with me. There was very little that he wasn't able to do as it didn't involve the stove.

After it was all mixed up, the sludge was really runny and I ended up dumping some of the water out into the sink.
My nephew even experimented with it, seeing if it would copy like silly putty did on newspaper...we had no newspaper, but it did copy from a stamp that was used on a box that had been mailed to us.
You can easily tear it apart and then shape it back together. It really is a strange consistency. Gabe had loads of fun with this, and used it as you would use play-dough also; cutting it out with a Mickey Mouse cookie cutter that I had on hand and shaping it (in any flat form) to his heart's content.
