Fun with Flubber

This is really what I had in mind when we first decided to homeschool this year.  Have plans, but if an idea comes up, go with it.  Be flexible.  Have fun.  Experience.  And that is what we did.

We watched the movie Flubber and then decided to make our own.

Flubber Recipe
Mix thoroughly
  • 1 1/2 cups very warm water
  • 2 cups Elmer's glue (not school glue)
  • food coloring (optional, as could stain clothing and skin)
In a separate bowl, mix thoroughly:
  • 1 1/3 cups very warm water
  • 2 level teaspoons Borax
Mix the contents of the two bowls together kneading until it is fully combined. Discard any remaining liquid.  Store the mixture in a Ziploc baggie for weeks of fun (& I personally felt it was less messy than play-doh).  Beware though, it will stick to hair, clothes, etc.  I used Goo-Gone to remove it easily.

This was fun for the whole family!
