More negative temperatures (and even worse wind chills) means a messy afternoon project to keep the big one happy!

This is one we've made before with enormous approval.  Flubber.

It's gooey.  It's wet.  It's slimy.  It's fabulously fun.

Here's the recipe:

1 1/2 c glue
4T Borax (found with the laundry detergent)
4 C water

Mix 2 cups water and the glue in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix 2 c water and the borax.
After it's dissolved pour the borax mixture a little at a time into the glue mixture and stir.
You might not need all the borax mixture.

Squish it, poke it, stick stuff in it, watch it ooze through your fingers.  It's fabulous.

A note that was with the recipe in my book: vinegar will take flubber out of clothes and mayo will take it out of hair-who knew!!!!  We did not get it on our clothes or hair while we played with it but something to tuck away for future reference I guess!!!!

She was making a "recipe" here. 


  1. I so wanted to make this with Carson this afternoon but Meijer was all out of Borax!
