Recipe for Flubber
Mixture 1
3/4 cups warm water
1 cup Elmer's glue (8oz)
food coloring

Mixture 2
2 tsp borax
1/2 cup of warm water

Stir mixture 1 together in 1 bowl, mixture 2 in another bowl. Make sure both are mixed well. Pour mixture 1 into mixture 2. No need to stir, just reach in and pull out a glob of flubber. Work it for 2 or 3 minutes...play for hours!! It is SOOOOO COOL when you pour the 1 into 2, it congeals immediately!

It is like a cross between silly putty and
Play-doh. Not sticky, more rubbery. I divide it up and store it in zip lock Baggies. It tends to weep a little liquid after storage, just pat with a paper towel. If it gets too stiff, just zap in microwave for a few seconds (3-5).
Have fun!!

You will need:
1 Cup of plain flour

You can add scents to the playdough by using vanilla or peppermint essence.
