Here’s a super fun activity to try out with the kiddies over the holidays 😊 we did it the other day and it was a lot of fun!
You will need:
1/2 a cup of warm water
1 tbsp of borax (found in the laundry aisle of Coles/woollies
Food colouring or watercolours (if you don’t want a little bit of staining)
1 tbsp of cornflour
2 tbsp of white liquid glue
(The above makes ONE bouncy ball)
Hint: use disposable gloves 😉
In a cup mix the warm water and borax.
In another cup, mix together the glue, cornflour & food colouring.
Pour the glue mixture into the cup with the water/borax mixture.
The glue mixture will slowly harden. When this happens pull the mixture out with a fork. If still soft put back in the water/borax mixture for a bit longer.
Roll the hardened glue mixture into a ball and voilà you have your very own bouncy ball!
