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.
How To Make Flubber
- 2 1/2 Cups warm water
- 4 TBS Borax
- 2 Cups White Glue Coloring optional
- Glitter optional
- Food Coloring optional
- Mason Jar/Ziploc Bag for storing optional
- Mix 2 cups water and glue together. Mix until mixed together well, set aside.
- Mix 1/2 cup of water, borax and food coloring together in separate bowl. Mix until borax is dissolved.
- Pour Borax mixture into glue mixture bowl mix the 2 together well.
- Kneed the mixture for a few minutes until it has formed into flubber and the food coloring is mixed in good.
- Have fun with your Flubber!
- Store in mason jar or Ziplock bag when not in use and the Flubber to last for about 3 weeks.
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.
