Make your own bouncy ball fun
- corn starch
- Elmer’s Glue-All
- warm water
- food color (optional)
- measuring spoons
- 2 bowls
Mixture #1 – 1st Bowl –
Add 2 tablespoons of warm water, plus 1/2 teaspoon of Borax and stir to dissolve the Borax as much as possible add food color to this mixture if desired & mix.
Bowl #2 –
Pour in 1 tablespoon Elmer’s Glue-All
Add 1/2 teaspoon of the above Borax mixture
and 1 tablespoon corn starch.
DO NOT MIX!
Let mixture stand for about 15 seconds then mix the ingredients until it becomes too hard to do so.
You will be able to tell when the time is right – it will get clumpy and combined together. At that point, take out the mixture into your hand and quickly knead it in a circular pattern to form your ball. (Think of when you make a ball with play dough.) It starts out as a sticky, gooey mess but it quickly starts to solidify so you must mold it quickly.
Once your ball has hardened – go ahead and bounce it!
