Fun for all ages

Make Flubber!

Mix 1 teaspoon of Metamucil (or similar soluble, store brand, clear (psyllium) fiber) + 8 ounces of warm water & stir until fiber is somewhat dissolved.
Place the mixture in a large bowl. Place bowl in the microwave on high for 4-5 minutes (actual time depends on microwave power) or until the goo is about to bubble out of the bowl. Let the mixture cool slightly, then repeat.
The more times this step is repeated, the more rubbery the substance will become. The purpose of the cooling step is to check the consistency of the slime and prevent it from overflowing the container.
