How To

Turn a Boring Afternoon at Home into an Exciting and Playful Day with the Kids!

When I heard that there was a recipe to make your very own bouncy balls, I thought it was too good to be true! The best part is, they're so easy to make even the kids can help you with it.

A simple recipe that translates a rainy day, or hot summer afternoon into a day of fun for everyone!


Materials Needed:

  • ½ cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon borax
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons white liquid glue
  • food coloring


In a cup mix the warm water and the borax.


In another cup mix the glue, cornstarch, and food coloring.



Pour the glue mixture into the water-borax cup.


The glue mixture will harden after 10 seconds; use a fork to take it out of the water. If the glue mixture is still sticky, squish it with your hands and dip it back in the water.


Roll the mixture in your hands to make a ball. The more you handle the mixture the firmer it will become.


You are done!
