What to do on a cold snowy day at home indoors? This flubber recipe is easy to make and gives little ones a whole new texture to play with.
2 tsp Borax (found in stores by laundry soap)
2 cups white glue
food coloring (optional)
1. Mix together 1 cup of water and 2 cups of glue. Add a few drops of food coloring.
2. In a separate bowl, dissolve 2 tablespoons of Borax into 1/4 cup of water.
3. Stir the Borax mixture into the glue mixture. The glue will clump up and form a mass. Take it out and knead it on a flat surface. There will be some liquid left over in the bowl.
The flubber is like no other play dough- it’s bouncy but not stretchy, it breaks in straight lines, and it oozes together. It’s really fun to experiment with!
Store it in a ziplock to keep it soft.
