Mix equal parts of shaving cream with glue. You can add food coloring for color if you want. Use a craft stick to stir and to put on paper. The mixture will puff up when it dries.

Using clear karo or otherwise known as corn syrup add a few tablespoons into plastic Dixie cups then add a few drops of food coloring have child paint with this then add glitter let dry for 24 hours this turns hard and glazed we used this idea to make a valentine. I used a 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of paper drew a heart on it had the children paint it then laid a 8-1/2 x 11 sheet of colored construction paper with a heart cut out to let the painted part show through.

Recipe for Silly Putty

In a zip loc bag, place 1 tablespoon Elmer's glue, 1 tablespoon water and 2 drops of food coloring Mix well. In a container mix 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon Borax. After the glue, water and food coloring have been mixed, add 1 tablespoon of the borax mixture. Close Ziploc and mix well. The result is a very, very close resemblance to the real silly putty.

A creative way to jazz up plain old white glue and make a new way to paint is to add kool-aid packets of various flavors( colors) into approximately 1/4 cup of glue. Mix thoroughly with paint brushes and amazing colors come through. This smells great and when it is dry it is glossy. A wonderful sensory activity

To keep your glue bottles from clogging up take a cotton swab and put Vaseline around the inside of the cap and also a little on the outside of the tip. When you use your glue you won't have to unclog the bottle.

I use empty film canisters to put glue in so that each child gets an individual portion and do not waste too much!

idea

Turn Glue to Silly Putty...

All-purpose glue - 1/2 cup 2 to 4 squirts of Bactistat (the hand soap they use in hospitals - I buy at a safety store)

Let the children use their hands to MIX and COMBINE

If not stiffening - add more bactistat

HOURS OF FUN!!!
