Homemade Goo

We're ready for hours of playtime using only a few ingredients that we already have around the house.  Whether we're at home, at a restaurant, traveling, or at a playdate, this goo is a hot ticket item in our house. Good news-it doesn't leave a resitudeo to stick to anything but itself!

8 oz white or carpenter's glue
3/4 cup water
food coloring (optional)
1 teaspoon 20 Mule Team borax
1-2 TB water

Combine first three ingredients.  In a separate bowl, combine the last two.  Add the borax mixture to the glue mixture, stirring until a "blob" forms.  Remove the blob from the mixture. Add a new batch of the borax mixture to the glue mixture.  Repeat the process until the glue mixture is all gone.  Knead all the blobs together.  Store in an airtight container.

Most of all, have FUN!

Peace,

Jen

I remember doing this in science class when we were studying cross-linked polymers :) Suuuper fun! I hadn't thought about it in years. Definitely doing this with the kids.
