ty Putty Think it, Make it, …even bake it!
We have recently had the pleasure of receiving the Nutty Putty box to review and the kids have had so much fun creating different designs.
What is Nutty Putty I hear you ask well it is made of non toxic hygienic silicone, it is the same stuff used to produce babies teats and pacifiers.
Our box came with the below inside which is all you need to get started:
7 Colours, 2 tools, 6 shape cutters, 1 roller, 1 baking sheet, 1 play mat with project instructions and 1 extra bonus colour (black).
The colours are yellow, Blue, Green, glow in the dark, Transparent violet, white and your bonus pack of black.
Once we had opened all the packets and checked out the project instructions we decided what we wanted to make, Kaitlin first decided on a Butterfly but it didn’t quite go to plan and she gave up and started again.
The silicone is really weird to handle it not like play doh or plastercine its harder to manipulate, but its good fun creating things and once you have played with if for a while you get used to it and what you can do with it.
You can see we had fun creating our unique designs and below is what we made, we still have loads left to create loads more things though which we are saving for a rainy day.
Once your design is complete you place it on the baking sheet provided in the box and you bake in a preheated oven for 10 mins at 200c to make you design permanent, make sure you leave to cool before playing with it.
It’s a very strange material to work with because when they come out they are rock hard but then when cooled they go back to be soft and playable although you can’t re create things they go soft and bendy which I think is really cool.
We had great fun playing and we have loads left to create more things. This is such a good set for those rainy days especially with the school holiday coming up it can be used with such a wide age range as well.
You can purchase this set direct from Nutty Putty which also has other sets to choose from. The 8 colour set cost £19.99 which I think is great price as you get loads of silicone and you only use a small amount to create your designs so it will last a while.
