Flubbed

Don't you just love Autocorrect?  When I was trying to email myself the pictures of the "flubber", stupid auto-correct changed it to "flubbed".  Now, I'm a pretty good speller, and I can definitely hold my own in the grammar department, so, thanks, but no thanks, auto-correct.

Ugh.  I think I just pulled a hammy climbing down off that soapbox.

Without further ado, here's the flubber installment of the "Pinned It, Tried It" series.

There are so many recipes out there for polymers: the name changes, but the principle stays the same.  Anyway, whatever you call it, this stuff is FUN.

In hindsight, I should have let the kids in on the making of the flubber.  The big deal is that you mix together two liquids to make a gelatinous solid.  I guess the next time I have four bottles of Elmer's glue laying around, we'll give it a whirl.


I made it this morning for the kids to play with when the babysitter arrived, but, evidently, she never got it out. 

No problem, that meant I got to be the hero when I got home.

After having the "No, we don't eat this," talk with Will, we took our own personal slimeball outside to play.

"It's cold!"
