    Default Hamemade "Flubber"

    In a small bowl, mix together:
    1 1/3 cups warm water
    3 tsp Borax

    In a large bowl, mix together:
    1 1/2 cups warm water
    2 cups white glue

    Pour small bowl ingredients into large bowl. Gently lift & turn. Let your kids watch what happens! Turn until about 1 Tbs of liquid is left. Flubber will be sticky for 1 or 2 minutes. Flubber has the properties of both a liquid & solid. You can make it into a ball, bounce it, stretch it, pull it apart. (If its left alone it will puddle up.) Keep it in an airtight container.

    Have fun!!!

    I thought it sounded like fun! (And probably cheaper to make than to buy!) Plus, this way the kids get a little bit of a science lesson while making it!
