Flubber Recipe

flubber recipe

Over the years we have made many different sensory bins for the kids. We have made flubber for the kids to play with inside of their sensory bins and it is always a favorite. When stored in a Mason jar in between uses it can last for about 3 weeks, so you can get quite a bit of play out of a batch.

Sometimes we have added glitter, I have also seen people use clear glue for a very interesting and fun looking flubber. Change it up and have fun with it, your kids will love it.

Here is some of the fun we had with our St. Patrick’s Day green goo. The nice thing about flubber is that there are many different ways to use it, and the texture of it is really loved by kids.
