A fun sensory play material inspired by the Disney movie Flubber, today’s bouncy slime recipe is a fun alternative to traditional slimes!
Homemade Flubber Recipe
We love making homemade slime, but as a parent, you can get slime fatigue – especially if your kids tend to push the boundaries when it comes to their sensory play!
Unlike slime, this flubber isn’t drippy or messy. It bounces, has a good amount of resistance when stretched and can hold a shape if you cut it with cookie cutters. It’s a fun way to switch things up, while still using the same slime materials you already probably have on hand.
It will still stick to surfaces if it touches fabric or carpet, but a quick soak of vinegar will remove it quickly and easily.
It completely reminds me of those jiggly, bouncy balls of Flubber in the Disney movie (either the 1997 version with Robin Williams or the 1961 original, The Absent Minded Professor). Whether you just make it as a rainy day activity or as part of a family Disney movie night, it’s guaranteed to be a hit with the kids.

How to Make Flubber
Pour the glitter glue into a medium-sized bowl.
Use a fork to stir in 1/4 cup warm water.
Add baking soda, stir to dissolve, then add the contact solution.
Test the slime and add more water if too stiff, more contact solution if too sticky.
Continue stirring until the slime forms into a ball, then knead for 2 minutes, adding more water or contact solution, as needed.
You are going for a stiffer consistency than a typical slime, but this recipe will also work to make a traditional, stretchy, slippery slime.
