The fun of Flubber.


What fun!  To play with this soft, pliable material is great for all ages!  You can’t help but smile when you are holding Flubber and it is so easy to make.

Place in one bowl and mix
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 2 cups elmer white glue
  • food coloring

In another bowl mix the following:

  • 1 1/3 cups warm water
  • 3 teaspoons borax
Once they are all mixed together, pour the mixture with the borax into the glue and see what happens!  You can stir with a spoon or with your hand.  The water will be absorbed into the mixture after some kneading.  Within a few minutes the Flubber is ready for playing!
Store in an air tight container.


Ingredients for flubber.


The science behind it is that the Borax molecules combine with the glue to form polymers.
