Make silly putty

This is the Harpo Marx tutorial. We have several recipes for silly putty in our index... with sound, but this version (from our friends at YouTube) is more colorful. We just like it the best. It is aesthetically more appealing than the others; conceived for the visually minded.

So today, find your inner child. Come on. Remember the magic of Silly Putty? Remember rolling it around on a newspaper and astoundingly seeing the mirrored image clinging to the putty? So simple. So pleasurable.

Fun for all days of the week. Knock yourself out.
