Borax Bouncy Balls

On one of Jessica's last days in Virginia, she was kind enough to watch Reagan while I went to work. I had left the car for them on that particular day, and when they came to pick me up, they had supplies to make bouncy balls! This is something Jessica and I did in grade school, and it's a lot of fun.

You need one box of Borax laundry detergent, a bottle of Elmer's glue, and some food coloring.


Step 1: Pour about 1/2 cup of Borax into a cup or bowl.

Step 2: Add a few droplets of food coloring into each container.

Step 3: With a small amount of the Borax in your hand, squirt some glue onto the pile and cover it with laundry powder. Start to roll it into a ball. 

Step 4: Continue adding glue and Borax until the ball becomes the size you would like.

Step 5: Play with the bouncy balls! 

This is a fun project that you can do with little ones. They like to mix the colors into the Borax and play with the balls. The part with the glue is a little tricky and Reagan didn't really grasp it. But with older kids, I'm sure they could handle this part. 

Thanks Jess for reminding us of this fun activity!
