Glow in the Dark Putty

Our Halloween activity of the day was to make glow in the dark putty.  This was super simple and fun activity.  I think the girls would have played with the putty all afternoon if we hadn't had to stop for their dance classes!

To make glow in the dark putty, you need a half cup of liquid starch, a half cup of white school glue, neon green food coloring, and 1 tablespoon of glow in the dark paint.

Pour all of the ingredients together and stir!

We had SO much fun, and I'm so glad to finally make putty again!  (O and I followed this recipe to make putty a few years ago, but we haven't made it since then because I was afraid that E would eat it.  Don't let kids who still put things in their mouths play with this putty as I'm pretty sure the liquid starch is dangerous if ingested.)


  1. this looks so cool. You always have great ideas.

  2. Thanks! This was a HUGE hit with the girls. They've played with the putty every day since we made it :)
