When I saw this on Pinterest, I knew I had to make it. HAD TO! Very simple and easy.
The hardest part was getting in and out of Hobby Lobby with my uncivilized monkeys.
2 (4 oz. each) bottle of glue
1-2 tsp. Borax
1/2 to 1 bottle of Glo It
small plastic container
Empty the bottles of glue into the mixing bowl. Fill the empty bottles of glue with water and put the lids back on. Shake ’em like a Polaroid picture. 🙂 Empty into the mixing bowl with the glue. Add the Glo-It.
Then add the food coloring of your choice! We chose neon colors.
Stir together. Set aside. Add 1/2 cup warm water to 1 tsp. of Borax in a different plastic container like a plastic cup or small bowl and stir until it’s mostly dissolved. Pour it into your glue bowl. Stir and you will see that it instantly thickens up and gets all stringy.
Set your spoon aside and use your hands to continue mixing. Trust me, it’s the only way to do it. If you notice after awhile that it’s still messy and not coming together, add another tsp. Borax to about 1/8 cup warm water and stirred to dissolve. Then I mixed it in with the rest of the Flarp. Perfect! Store it in a plastic zip close bag or other air tight container.
Find any small container and hand it over to your kids, they will know how to make it “fart.” Later, once they are done “flarping”, store in a plastic bag underneath a light. This will make it glow later!
Note: It might help to mix the Glo with the food coloring for a better “glow”. Ours glowed but not as much as we would like.
