DIY bouncy balls that require you to make a little mess? Sign us up! These only take a few minutes to make and are super easy.
1 tbsp Elmer’s Glue
1/2 tsp. Borax
3 tbsp Cornstarch
4 tbsp warm water
food coloring (optional)
Start by mixing the glue and a few drops of food coloring in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix the water, cornstarch and Borax together. Then combine all ingredients. (Ignore the shirt change – I didn’t want the food coloring to stain Carson’s shirt so I did quick switch to an old shirt)
Take the glob out of the mixture and roll it in your hands to form a ball. It will be sticky at first, but you can wipe some of it off on a paper towel.
After a few minutes you have a bouncy ball! *You may have to play around with the mixture some to get the best texture.
