Soap Based Flubber (Non-Toxic)

Introduction: Soap Based Flubber (Non-Toxic)

Let's make bath time fun and safe!

Do your kids love playing with play-dough or squishy stuff?

Do your kids avoid bath time?

Then this is the perfect recipe for you!


Flubber is a fun and engaging play medium. Many store bought versions, however, can be harmful for the skin. This recipe is safe for use on your body since the base uses soap/body wash with no added chemicals.


I highly suggest letting your little ones craft this themselves with adult supervision. The kids will enjoy making the flubber and playing with the result!

Supplies

  • Bowl
  • Spatula

Ingredients

  • Hand Soap or Body Wash
  • Cornstarch or Flour
  • Cooking Oil
  • Food Coloring (optional)

Step 1: Mix All Ingredients Together

Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl with a spatula:

  • 1/2 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup Liquid Soap
  • 3 tablespoons Cooking Oil

At first it will have a consistency similar to icing and then it will slowly become more dough-like.

Tips:

  • During the mixing process, you can adjust the quantity of the cooking oil and cornstarch to either water it down or stiffen it up, respectively
  • If using flour instead of corn starch, use a bit less as flour will result in a dryer flubber

Step 2: Pinch Off Some Slime and Wash Those Hands!

The flubber is now complete.

Place near a sink or a bathroom for easy access.

When using the flubber, pinch off a small section, and rub it vigorously between your hands.

It should start to foam and soap up.

Enjoy a safe, soapy, and doughy bath time!
