Flubber With Elmer's Glue


Recommended Posts

My daughter's preschool class plays with "Flubber," which I believe it made with Elmer's glue, Borax, water, and food coloring. Would that be safe for her...anything with gluten? Thanks!

This is from the Elmer's website:

Is Elmer's glue gluten free?

All of our products are gluten free except for the Elmer's Finger Paints. The finger paints contain wheat and oat products.

Thanks. So now I'm just wondering about the Borax. The alternate names for Borax are sodium borate, or sodium tetraborate, or disodium tetraborate...it's a mineral and a salt of boric acid. I would think it's fine, but does anyone know for sure?
