Borax, glue, water, food color (optional)
One of my kids favorite activities is making Flubber. Flubber is a great afternoon activity that will keep the kids busy for quite a while. In two separate bowls mix the following -- Bowl 1: 3/4 cup warm water, 1 cup Elmers glue, food coloring; Bowl 2: 2 tsp Borax, 1/2 cup warm water Make sure that both bowls are mixed well and that the Borax is dissolved. Combine Bowl 2 into Bowl 1 and mix ( I usually use a spatula). Reach into the bowl and pull out the flubber, leaving any excess liquid. Work the flubber with your hands for 2 to 3 minutes. My kids love to use cookie cutters, and other kitchen utensils to make shapes. Squishy fun!
