Transcript:How to Make Silly GooHi, I'm Natasha Levitan for About.com. Today I'm going to show you the funnest substance: silly goo. It is squishy and hardens in your hands when you squeeze it, but pours like a liquid when you pour it.
Silly Goo IngredientsTo make silly goo, you will need:
- 1/2 cup white glue
- 1 cup liquid starch
- bottles of food coloring
- plastic zippered bags
- a metal spoon
Make the Silly GooIn a large bowl combine glue and liquid starch and mix them together well. The more you mix them, the thicker the consistency will become.
When you're done, the consistency should become stiff but runny when picked up. And if the mixture is too squishy, you can add more starch.
Add few drops of your favorite colors. Try to add more drops of colors to get new shades of your choosing.
Store the Silly GooWhen the mixture is fairly well mixed you can place it on the cutting board and play with it. You can store your silly goo in an airtight plastic baggy. Goo will keep for two to three weeks if sealed in airtight baggie.
