Homemade Goop Putty

In this video we will show you how to make homemade goop putty. Goop putty is a sticky, slimy substance that is so much fun to play with any time of day.

The materials you need are:

  • white glue
  • borax
  • water
  • a brand new highlighter OR food coloring

Step 1: Choose Your Glue

Pour your glue in to a container or any type of bowl. Be very generous with the amount of glue you pour. You can either use white glue or clear glue. Clear glue will make transparent putty, and white glue will make a solid-colored putty.

Step 2: Create the Mixture

Bring out the borax. Take exactly 1 cup of water. If you don’t have borax, powdered sugar or powdered laundry detergent will also work.

After filling up 1 cup of water, put a teaspoon of borax (or detergent) into the water. Stir until the borax is completely dissolved. Then pour your borax and water mixture into the glue.

Step 3: Add Color

You have two options: Either you can pour in the liquid of a brand new highlighter to create glow in the dark goop putty or you can use food coloring.

Step 4: Mix It All

Mix it all very well with your hands, and you will see it start to become more and more gooey until it turns into putty.

You can store your goop putty in a plastic zip bag, and it will stay good for about a month.
