Introducing a baking, art and science experiment that created memories and squeals, “Flubber” is brought to you by the curious hands of elementary students! We made this souvenir for a PTA Fundraiser. If you have any kids, you’ve probably learned by now that Flubber is squishy and fun to touch. Enjoy the recipe to make at home. Note: We bought all the ingredients at The Dollar Tree, including the bowl.
Have a “flubber” time with this project! Brent & Erica Holland
Ingredients 16 oz Elmers glue 1 can Shaving cream (we used scented) 1 Foam soap (important to have the foaming pump) 1 Liquid hand soap 1 Hand lotion Borax powder Cornstarch or tapioca starch/flour Food coloring or washable paint (food coloring works best)
Supplies Large bowl Silicon mixing spatulas Measuring cups and spoons
Batch of 4 Premix 3 level tsp Borax into 3 cups warm water Pour 2 cups glue into bowl Add 2 cups shaving cream Add 2 cups foam soap Combine above ingredients Add 5 Tbls cornstarch (carefully mix) Add 4 pumps hand soap Add 8 pumps hand lotion Combine Add food coloring (4-8 drops) Add 12 tsp borax mixture, mix Add 1 tsp at a time borax mixture until correct consistency (you’ll know it’s the right consistency when it collects from the sides of the bowl and congels in a sticky mass…but you don’t want it too sticky) Remove from bowl and knead with hands A LOT (if sticky, add more Borax mixture, but not too much because you can’t recover from hardening it too much with Borax) Add pumps of body lotion to make stretchy throughout kneading process
