Have your kids jumped on the silly putty train? Mine have! It doesn’t seem to be slowing down with kids these days, so why not jump on board with a new fun twist: edible sour gummy worm silly putty! How much fun will this be to make with your kids? It’s easy and fun and will give kids a new way to make an old favorite.
Edible Sour Gummy Worm Silly Putty
Start by placing your bag of sour gummy worms into a microwave safe bowl
Place the bowl in the microwave for 30 seconds, and check to see if the gummy worms are starting to melt. If they are not, continue to microwave at 10 second intervals until they are. It took our gummy worms 40 seconds to melt in a microwave that is 1,000 watts. Adjust your time according to your microwave’s wattage.
Once the gummy worms have melted, stir them thoroughly with a spoon to mix the colors well.
Add 1 tablespoon of corn starch to your bowl and mix well.
Add 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar to your bowl and mix thoroughly.
At this point the mixture will become hard to stir, just do the best you can, smooshing the mixture with the back of the spoon to expose new sticky areas to the powdered sugar and corn starch in your bowl.
Slowly add in more corn starch ½ tablespoon at a time until your mixture is no longer as sticky. It took us 1 tablespoon of powdered sugar and a total of 2 ½ tablespoons of corn starch before our mixture reached this stage.
Place some corn starch on your hands and take your mixture out of the bowl. Work it in your hands, adding a dusting of corn starch as needed, until it is no longer tacky.
Stretch, have fun and enjoy!
Since this is an edible silly putty, it really does not store well. Toss it after you are done playing with it! Sometimes the fun is in the process. Have fun!
