Homemade Glue

How to make homemade glue:

Ingredients for making homemade glue:

measuring cups and spoons
2 small paper drinking cups
mixing spoon
cheesecloth to use as a filter


1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon white vinegar
pinch baking soda


1. Pour the milk into one of the cups. Add the vinegar and stir for 1 minute. The mixture will form clumps (curds) and clear liquid (whey).

2. Place the cheesecloth over the second cup and push the middle down a bit.

3. Holding the cheesecloth in place, slowly pour the curds and whey into the cloth. Most of the whey will flow through the cloth into the cup. Gently squeeze the rest of the whey into the cup, then throw the liquid whey away.

4. Scrape the curds into the empty cup. Add the baking soda and stir well. You have glue!!

*Put some glue in a small squeeze bottle or old glue bottle, then mix in a little food coloring or tempera paint. Use the colored glue to draw pictures or add 3-D accents to artwork. Glue is thicker than paint so allow extra time to dry.
