Day 9 in our Disney Video Tour — A Fun Activity For Your Kids

Disney Tips - Making Flubber

Welcome to Day 9 in our 10 Days of Disney Video Tour.

As we showed you yesterday, Disney Cruise Line specializes in entertaining kids in the most magical ways.

Here we let you in on one of the fun activities your kids will experience on board.

Watch Jackson learn how to make Flubber…

Here is the RECIPE for FLUBBER so your kids can get in on the action!

In one container (beaker) mix together:
• 50ml Blue Glue (we use Elmers)
• 2 teaspoons of water
• 1 drop of yellow food colouring

In a second container (flask) mix together:
• 2 soup spoons of water
• 1 teaspoon of Borax (soap powder/brand name laundry detergent) – this is what’s known as the “PIXIE DUST”

Add the two solutions together and stir well, and voila…Flubber should appear!
Be careful not to add too much food colouring or it will turn a brown colour instead of green.

For added bounciness place in the fridge for 30 minutes after making it!

And in the nature of full disclosure… Disney paid for our trip and produced these videos. But as you can imagine, they certainly didn’t need to pay us to love and gush about Disney… that just comes naturally. :)

    It depends what we’re studying in science whether or not they are interested in experiments. This flubber experiment looks like great fun though. Love the professor’s hair!

  2. Rebecca says

    No kids, but I like science experiments… especially the kind where you mix up yummy things like flour, sugar and chocolate and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. He hee. Does that count? ;)

  3. heather says

    Kids are still too young for a true science experiment but they love to do new things and they love to do some new experiments that we try out in the kitchen :)

    My son loves Science and loves doing Science Experiments. We have actually done this one before. He has a Science Kit that he got for Christmas that gives him the recipe for 6 different types of goo. He loves it.

    I’m just so excited to be the 1st commenter today! Yeah! Can you tell I really want to win one of these Disney prizes?!

    Where is the recipe for Flubber? It looks fun and easy to make.

  6. says

    My daughter is still too young for actual science experiments, but she loves new things nad she loves helping me cook. I think this flubber would be a great way to introduce her to the world of science.

  7. says

    My kids are 2yo, 1yo, and another on the way. . . but it won’t be long!! My son is into everything, exploring his world! So I’m sure he will love science experiments very soon. :-)

  8. says

    I’m sure my 1 ad 2 yo will love to do them in the future but not so much right now. It doesn’t matter if we are coloring, singing, reading or staring at the ceiling..if it is a mommy/Chloe activity she loves it!

  9. Wendy Kreskowiak says

    My son is 16 months old so everything feels like an experiement sometimes! If he follows in his Dad’s ways I’m sure he will love experiments when he is a little older.

  10. says

    My son, Austen, LOVES to do science experiments. He especially likes to mix up magic potions. He gets a container and goes all around the house to find liquids to mix in it, like hand soap, juice, shampoo, toothpaste, laundry soap, and more! He makes a huge mess, but he loves to be a “scientist”!

  11. says

    My oldest daughter’s favorite subject is science. She loves it so much I actually enrolled her in what is called “Mad Science” here after school. She has learned lots of great things there. So fun!

  12. says

    We love science experiments at our house! Some are actual science experiments, some turn into experiments when boredom sets in and concoctions are made just to “see what happens.” My boys are really curious and like to know how things work, so anything science related gets a pretty good reception in our home.

  13. says

    Oh my niece love love loves science experiments but they usually involve things like “what will happen if i put ice cream on a pop tart and then eat it” LOL

  14. says

    My kids enjoyed science experiments when they were little, but due to science fair at school, they have taken all the fun out of them. They would still enjoy the things we would do in the kitchen like making volcanoes, but we just don’t get time to do that anymore.

  15. says

    Well, the big “kid” in my house loves science and doing all kinds of experiments so I’m sure just as soon as the little man is big enough to be involved safely he will be!

  16. Dyanna says

    My 5 year old is still a bit young for what i would consider a science experiment but she sure does a lot of experimenting with things around the house.

  17. says

    my kids absolutely love science and experiments. my husband is a in college studying to become a biochemist, so my kids know about molecules, rna, dna,and so much more

  18. Shawn C. says

    My son LOVES to do science experiments! He’d love the Flubber experiment, we’ll have to try it this weekend. My toddler daughter hasn’t done many experiments but loves nature…;)

    My grandsons are too young for science projects yet,but my daughter didnt like doing them in school,I however loved doing them!an became a Nurse later on

  20. says

    My kids LOVE science experiments! Just watched the Flubber video with my son (and I’ll show my daughter after school), and we are definitely going to make some — just need to pick up some glue!

  21. Alka says

    The kids love to do science experiments – like the little magic school bus kits. They love microscopes and any scope especially.

  22. says

    My girls are only 3.5 so they’re a little young for all but the most basic “science” experiments. They love the show “Sid the Science Kid” on PBS so we have done some “experiments” like making water change color. Nothing too complicated.

  23. Sara says

    She’s not yet old enough for science experiments yet, but some of the things she does with her dinner could certainly qualify…

  24. jeccica simpson says

    Yes my 9 & 7 year olds, love to mix things together and see what they come up with and what happens!!!!! Future Scientists, maybe!!

  25. says

    Cool! What kid wouldn’t LOVE to make flubber? It’s messy, gooey, and all kinds of fun. But does it stain…?

    Also: are you two wearing matching shirts? So cute!
