Keep the Kids Busy for Hours: Make Your Own Flubber!
SUMMER CRAFT: spend 5 minutes making something to occupy the kiddos for hours… make some Flubber!
Kids love Flubber — it’s slimy without being sticky, it’s silly without being disgusting, and it holds its shape without drying out. Best of all, you and and your kids can make it with simple household materials
Before anyone asks, this recipe came from a preschool YEARS ago and it calls for Borax – this is completely safe and VERY different from Boric Acid – don’t freak out!
What you need:
3/4 cup cold water
1 cup Elmer’s glue
liquid food coloring
1/2 cup hot water
1 teaspoon borax (you can find this in a box in the laundry aisle)
step 1: in bowl #1 – mix together the cold water, glue, and food coloring. set aside.
step 2: in bowl #2 – mix together the hot water and borax, until the borax is completely dissolved.
step 3: slowly add glue mixture to borax mixture. mix well. pour off excess water.
Store in an airtight container and have some fun! Great rainy day project!
