How to Make a Bouncy Ball

How to Make a Bouncy Ball in five minutes! 

Ingredients:
½ Cup Warm Water
1 Tb Borax
1 Tb of Cornstarch
2 Tb White Liquid Glue
Food coloring
Optional: Disposable rubber gloves.

Instructions:

  • 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!

Notes:
Keep in mind that the balls will flatten a bit after sitting for a while. Store them in small plastic containers or a plastic bag. If they get flattened roll them between your palms again, this will bring them back to the ball shape.
