There is something satisfying about playing with silly putty. When I was young, I remember spending hours molding, squishing, and stretching those little balls of silly putty.
The best part about making your own DIY silly putty is it’s super easy to make and much cheaper than buying it pre-made from the store! It’s just like the real thing, it stretches without breaking, yet can be “”snapped off”” cleanly.
