How to Make Flubber – Flubber Recipe

Flubber is a super fun substance and easy to make with kids. It drips and stretches but it doesn’t make a mess. The first time you see a drop of this stuff on the floor you think “oh great…this is going to be fun to clean up” but even though it looks liquid-y it peels right off the floor like a solid. Kids love it.
