    Southern Polar Bear's Note:

    Flubber is a blast to make and your kids will spend endless hours playing with it. It is the perfect indoor activity when the snow, rain, or (in my case) heat keeps you indoors. Your kids are limited only by their imaginations when they are given a big, rubbery pile of Flubber to play with. Even older kids will have a great time using it to play practical fart jokes (Windbreakers). Note: Use liquid watercolor for this recipe, do not use food coloring!!

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 473.18 ml all-purpose white glue
    • 473.18 ml warm water
    • 44.37 ml borax
    • 78.07 ml warm water
    • liquid watercolor, do not use food coloring

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, mix together 1/3 cup of warm water and 3 TBSP of Borax.
    2. 2
      Stir until dissolved.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, mix together the glue, 2 cups of warm water, and a few drops of liquid watercolor (until desired color is reached).

    5. 5
      Lift and stretch the combined mixture until all or most of the liquid is absorbed.
    6. 6
      Flubber can be used to make Windbreakers by forcing air pockets out of small round containers (yogurt containers work very well).

      Store in an airtight container.
    8. 8
      Important: Flubber will wash out of clothes, but it will not come out of carpet or upholstry.

      This was my last Spring PAC recipe & I finally made it today. The finished product was great but I did have just a little trouble getting everything to mix. My borax didn't dissolve too well so maybe my water should have been a little hotter. In the end not all the liquid became incorporated possibly due to the borax. I was left with about 1/2 cup liquid still in the bowl. Another thing I would probably do is add some frangrance next time as it doesn't smell very appealing. Didn't stop my toddler from having a blast with this though, make sure the kids wear a plastic art smock when playing with this as it sticks to fabric. Thanks for posting!

      We have made this as a science experiment. I would however caution people that it is for kids who would know better than to put it in their hair! (That's for you to figure out the age :) It's really hard to get out! I would make this only for playing at the table or outside.
