I am so, so, so, so, so excited about this post! Every weekend I try to put together some kind of fun sensory activity for us to do as a family. The boys have been absolutely loving Playdoh lately, so I wanted to branch off of that and make something similar but with a different look and feel. I found this recipe and knew I just had to try it out!
It took just a few minutes to make and it kept my kids busy and focused for over an hour (score!). And, I’m not going to lie, I was right there with them – this stuff is FUN!
BONUS: You can buy EVERYTHING you need right on Amazon and have it delivered to your door by this weekend! Plus, liquid starch was a little hard for me to find, so it was really easy to just have it delivered.
- Glue: Elmers Washable School Glue (6 pack)
- Glitter: Glitter Jar OR Glitter Jar – these are really big jars, perfect for multipule uses!
- Liquid Starch: Purex Sta-Flo Liquid Starch
- Warm Water
- Animals (optional): Toob Animals
- Squeeze two bottles of Elmers School Glue into a large bowl.
- Add 1/2 cup of warm water and stir.
- Add desired amount of glitter into the bowl (we used around 2 tbs), mix
- Slowly add in 1/2 cup of your liquid starch. *Tip do not dump in all at once, be sure to add little bits at a time while continuously mixing with either your hands or a wooden spoon.
It is seriously so much fun to make and play with! I tried spicing it up a bit and created another batch and added in 4-5 drops of pink food coloring, here is the result –
Fun, right? Be sure to try this with your kiddos if you’re looking for a fun sensory activity, I guarantee they’ll love it! What I love about this activity is that there is so much room for customization – I think the next batch we make will mirror the old school green slime!
Have YOU made homemade Flubber?
