Who Wants to Make Some Flubber?

April 10, 2014

If you are anything like me you have probably made more kinds of slime and goo than you can count.


If you need something new to make try this flubber out.


This is a fun one to make with your students.


You will need:

3.5 cups of water

2 cups of school glue

5 Tbs of Borax

Food coloring

A small bowl

A large bowl

A large wooden spoon


What to do:

Mix 1 1/2 cups of water & 2 cups of glue in a big bowl. Add color and stir it up.


In a smaller bowl, mix together the remaining 2 cups of water and 5 Tablespoons of Borax (you should handle the borax, not your students). After it is completely dissolved, pour the Borax mixture slowly, and a little at a time, into the glue and water mixture and watch it coagulate. Keep pouring slowly and mixing at the same time to create a big flubber ball.


Flubber can be stored for a few weeks in an airtight container.
