Making Silly Putty

The recipe 

This morning in the Walnut room during am centers, three children helped Mrs. Potter make silly putty.  The children looked at the step by step guide Mrs. Potter created. The children read aloud and said, we need two cups of liquid starch and two cups of glue. Once the ingredients were mixed into a big bowl, the children and Mrs. Potter mixed the ingredients together using their hands. The children explored the process of making silly putty.
