Summary: Making glue at home can be fun and it is also a cheaper alternative to store bought products. It can be very useful for children to know how to make glue on their own.


  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup boiling water


  1. Blend together cornflour and water until smooth.
  2. Pour boiling water over cornflour mixture, stirring constantly to create a thin paste.
  3. If you would like thicker glue, add some PVA glue which will also give it extra strength.
