You Can Make Your Own Super Bouncy Balls At Home With This Simple Recipe

  • Materials:

For each ball that you make, you'll need:

1 T. white glue
1/2 tsp. borax powder (can be found in the laundry detergent aisle of most grocery/department stores)
food coloring
3 T. cornstarch
4 T. warm water

    For each ball that you make, you'll need:

    1 T. white glue
    1/2 tsp. borax powder (can be found in the laundry detergent aisle of most grocery/department stores)
    food coloring
    3 T. cornstarch
    4 T. warm water

  • In one cup combine the warm water, cornstarch & borax. put the glue in another cup or bowl.

    Next add several drops of food coloring to the glue & mix well.

    Give your water/borax/cornstarch mixture a good stir to combine all the ingredients (the cornstarch has a tendency to settle to the bottom).

  • Then pour the water mixture into the colored glue.

    Stir and you'll see it immediately start to clump together. Stir a bit more until you have one big, slimy glob.

    Take the glob out of the liquid and begin rolling it between the palms of your hands to form a ball. It'll be sticky at first, so keep a paper towel handy to wipe off your hands occasionally. Soon a rubbery ball will form. (We found that just using our palms seemed to work better than using our whole hands and fingers.)

    Once the stickiness is gone and you have a nice smooth ball, that's it! You can bounce away!

  • The balls will flatten out after sitting for a while, but storing them in small plastic containers and then rolling them between your palms again will help the super bouncy balls regain their shape. Keep on bouncing!
