Long Weekend Project For The Kiddies - Flubber Recipe

Image
It's only the first day of a 4 day weekend and my kids are already antsy. Here's a cool project to get them busy for at least.....30 minutes (parents out there know what I mean).

Flubber recipe and photo (courtesy of Frugal Fun Challenge)

Mixture 1:

-1 ½ cups warm water
-2 cups Elmer’s Glue
-Food coloring

Mixture 2:

-3 tsp. Borax
-1 cup Warm Water

Stir mixture 1 together in 1 bowl. Mixture 2 in another bowl. Make sure both are mixed well. Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2.

There is no need to stir the mixture but you can if you want because it is the chemical reaction that actually makes the flubber. When it is in a glob work it for 2-3 minutes. Initially it feels wet but it eventually dries up to the final product.
