Homemade Flubber (water putty)

Homemade Flubber (water putty)

Are you looking for a fun activity to do with your kiddos? How about making homemade Flubber also known as Water Putty...
As you do, this activity think about our need for clean water and ways to
use it wisely.

Container 1:
1 1/2 cups of water
2 cups of white glue (non-school type)
Food Coloring

Container 2:
1 1/3 cups of warm water
3 teaspoons borax

Mix contents of each container thoroughly.
Pour container 2 into container 1.
Gently lift and turn the mixture until all but one tablespoon of liquid is left. Flubber will be sticky for a moment or two. Let excess liquid drip off and flubber will be ready. Store in a airtight container when not in use.
Will keep for about three weeks. Makes enough flubber for six to eight people.




  1. What a great craft! I just Stumbled it.
