Super Ball


Occasionally I add a craft to my blog in addition to a recipe. Today the grandkids and I decided to make super balls! They only use five ingredients and believe or not they turned out! They were not very messy to make and were simple too! They only bounce about a foot but the kids thought they were great. I don’t know how long they will last but as easy as they were who cares.

Super Ball



  • Borax
  • cornstarch
  • warm water
  • food coloring
  • Elmer’s glue


  1. In a small bowl mix 2 Tbsp warm water with 1/2 tsp borax. Add food coloring and stir until borax is dissolved.
  2. In another small bowl, add 1 Tbsp glue, 1/2 tsp of the Borax solution in #1 and 1 Tbsp  of cornstarch…DO NOT STIR….wait 15 seconds.
  3. Stir until it is too hard to stir anymore, put the glob in your hand and start rolling into a ball. If the ball doesn’t want to stick together, add a little water.
  4. Once the ball is formed let it sit for about 15 minutes then bounce away!

    • The kids loved it because they made it. Today they are playing with it like a ball. It’s not real bouncy today on the hard floor and bounces higher on the carpet…go figure! They played for almost an hour with them today already. I love that they aren’t sticky and can be played with in the house.

  1. I remember playing with one of those when I was a kid … my grandmother once made a lemon pie and it was so rubbery that the family joked it had powers like a superball. (I wouldn’t have laughed because mine might not have been any better!”)
