DIY Kid Crafts: Homemade Flubber

(photo credit)

Frugal Fun Challenge has made this great DIY Kids project for making your own flubber.  Does anyone remember that movie with Robin Williams?  This is a more flexible, gigglier, wetter version of play dough.

What You’ll Need:

Mixture 1:

  • 1 ½ cups warm water
  • 2 cups Elmer’s Glue
  • Food coloring

Mixture 2:

  • 3 tsp. Borax
  • 1 cup Warm Water

*Stir mixture 1 together in 1 bowl and 2 in a separate bowl.

How To Do It:

  1. Mix bowl 1 and 2 together
  2. You won’t need to stir the mixture because it is the chemical reaction that actually makes the flubber. 
  3. When it has formed a glob, work it for 2-3 minutes.
  4. It feels wet at first but it eventually dries up to the final product.

About the Author


First and foremost I must give credit where it is due. I would not be able to do this with out God. He is my provision. I'm blessed to able to stay at home with my two little ones. He always meets our needs no matter how big or small. I have a 6yr old boy and a 2yr old girl who for the most part keep me running. I've been married to my best friend for 7yrs. I'm always looking for a deal, and now I'm helping bring them to you. The purpose of this blog is to share my every growing knowledge of couponing, shopping, & frugality. I will also post sites I think you might enjoy and insists on my faith. I know that part is not "politically correct" and may offend some people but I honestly do not care. The Word is not and never will be "politically correct" until politics get back to the principals that they were originally based upon. Having said that I will get off my soapbox and back to the couponing. I starting couponing when we were in the Marine Corp a few years back and now it's become a part of me. If I don't have to have it or don't have a coupon, I try not to buy it. I say try b/c I'm a former shopaholic. LOL! Now I'm one with coupons! So needless to say Black Friday is my FAVORITE shopping day of the year!
