   Flubber (aka Tar as Beck likes to call it) submitted by Karen Johnson
This is a great activity to do with kids. The end result is a fabulous substance that stretches and when rolled into a ball will bounce. My son loves to pretend his animals get stuck in it like tar pits. Hours of fun!

1) In a large container combine and mix:
o 1 cups very warm water
o 2 cups Elmers white glue
o A few drops of water color and/or glitter if using clear glue
Make sure this combination is completely mixed.

2) In a small container combine and mix
o 1 1/3 cups very warm water
o 2 level tsp 20 Mule Team Borax
Make sure the Borax is completely dissolved.

Use your hands to mix the contents of the small container into the large container.
Lift and turn the mixture until it is fully combined. Discard any leftover liquid.
Store in an airtight container. Discard when starts to smell (a month or so)
