DIY Floam Recipe

Prep Time15 mins
Author: Mique Provost


  • ½ c. clear glue
  • 2-3 drops food coloring of your choice
  • ½ c. liquid starch
  • styrofoam balls


  • Pour ½ cup of glue into a bowl (that you don't mind using for this experiment ;).
  • Add 2 to 3 drops into the glue and stir.
  • Pour in ½ c. liquid starch and mix well.
  • You will need to mix for awhile - approximately 5-10 minutes. At first it won't look like it will turn into floam, just keep mixing.
  • When it starts sticking well and coming off the wall of the bowl, run it under water for a couple of seconds.
  • Pour styrofoam balls into a separate bowl and add the floam.
  • Knead until well mixed.
