Homemade Flubber

Again, as I’ve mentioned in previous blogs, my kids love squishy things. I think it’s a great sensory experiment for them and they gain more experience in their own senses. So this past weekend we decided to make homemade flubber. It’s easy to make and in fact, quite squishy which was perfect for their little hands!


  • Two bowls
  • 3/4 cup cold water
  • 1 cup Elmer’s glue
  • Liquid food colouring
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1 teaspoon borax (you can find this in a box in the laundry aisle)
  1. In bowl 1 – mix together the cold water, glue, and food colouring. set aside.
  2. In bowl 2 – mix together the hot water and borax, until the borax is completely dissolved.
  3. Slowly add glue mixture to borax mixture. mix well. pour off excess water.
