How to Make FLUBBER

So, what do you do when it's rainy out and there are antsy kiddos? You make FLUBBER!! While slime is all the rage, make something else. Be different. Stand out in the crowd. :)

FLUBBER is super easy to make, it's super FUN to make, and watching the chemical reactions from the different ingredients is super interesting to watch. It's a science experiment, and the kids won't even realize it. That's a mama WIN right there!

Here's what you'll need to make hours of play for your littles.

First, create mixture one:
one large bowl
3/4 cups warm water
1 cup school glue {two 4 oz. bottles or one 8 oz. bottle}
food coloring, to have colored FLUBBER

Next, create mixture two:
a second large bowl
2 teaspoons borax {found in the laundry aisle or click here to buy it}
1/2 cup warm water

Stir mixture one together in one bowl, and mixture two in another bowl. Make sure both mixtures are mixed well.

Now, combine the two. Pour mixture two into mixture one. This is where the chemical reaction begins. There's no need to stir the two mixtures, just reach in and pull out a glob of FLUBBER!

Jonah and Jett absolutely LOVED making this! We will definitely make this again!

Thank you, Nani and Aunt Kel for making FLUBBER with us.

Does it dry out?

Not if you put it in a tightly sealed plastic bag.
