As a party favor for my daughter's 9th birthday this weekend, we made flubber. It was really easy, and took only a few minutes...

It was her idea to take a few Squinkle toys and hide them in the flubber... 

I was impressed with how long the girls played with the flubber. It was definitely the hit of the party. 
Here's the simple recipe. We added a little lavender essential oil to them  at the last step. You can use them unscented like the recipe or add anything that appeals to you. 

Bowl 1:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 cups elmer white glue
Bowl 2:
1 1/3 cups warm water
3 teaspoons borax
food coloring
essential oil

How to Make:

1 In one container mix 1 1/2 cups warm water and the white glue.
2 In another container mix 1 1/3 cups of warm water and Borax.
3 Combine the borax mix and the glue mix together until evenly mixed. Sometimes there’s a little extra liquid at the bottom, and you can ignore this.
4 Add a few drops of food coloring, and a single drop of essential oil in the scent you like. If you want more than one color, separate into multiple containers, and then add the color.
5 Store in a sealed container. We used old baby food jars, but have used plastic bags in the past (although in the bags they seemed to dry out faster).
