Who says you can’t have your fun and eat it too? This recipe for Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty is a kid activity that’s fun for the whole family.
Hey Kenarry readers! It’s me, Trish, back again. This time I brought along a replacement word for the age-old phrase, “who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?” I also brought along a simple tutorial for edible fun to prove that the words “fun” and “cake” are interchangeable in that well known phrase.
Do you have a summer bucket list? A few weeks ago I shared a post with the bucket list that my six year old and I created for this summer. We had plenty of ideas to fill our summer months however both he and I enjoy down time too. Along with going to the beach, a baseball game and camping, we also included have a pajama day and make play dough on our summer bucket list.
Even though we thought that pajama day would be a great day to make play dough we decided to try something new. We made Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty. And even though our silly putty felt a little bit like play dough we did not mark “make play dough” off of our bucket list. Our plan is to make the real stuff on our next pajama day. It is highly likely that we will make another round of silly putty too. With just two non-toxic edible ingredients, it is too easy not to make again!

Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty
1 Cup Yogurt (without fruit chunks)
1 1/4 Cups Cornstarch
- Spoon yogurt into a small mixing bowl.
- Add the cornstarch to the bowl then mix the two ingredients together.
- Continue to mix the Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty until it can be rolled into a ball.
- When a ball of Putty can be formed pick it up and manipulate it with your hands to ensure the two ingredients are well combined.
- If it is too dry, add more yogurt. If the Putty is too sticky, mix in a little more cornstarch.
- Squish, squeeze, play with and even eat your Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty.
- When the putty fun comes to an end just throw it away. It does not keep well.
Whether or not you have a summer bucket list, I highly recommend making Edible Two Ingredient Silly Putty. It makes an for an awesome indoor activity on really hot summer days and pajama days.
Until next time…
Cheers! ~ Trish
