Make Your Own Bouncy Ball

This classic toy can be made at home!


  • 1 tablespoon of borax
  • 1/2 cup of warm water
  • 2 tablespoons of  white glue
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • Food coloring


  1. Combine the warm water and borax
  2. Stir the mixture until the borax has disappeared
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the cornstarch and glue
  4. Pour the glue mixture into the water, and wait 10-15 seconds
  5. The ball mixture will have firmed up a bit- take it out of the water and roll it around in your palms until it’s circular
  6. To firm up the ball, dunk it in the water mixture once again
  7. Play ball!
