Each student needs:
- 1/4 cup cornstarch
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 Tablespoon sugar
- 1 cup cold water
- Food coloring
- Put the cornstarch, salt, sugar and water into a pot. Cook over low heat about 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
- The mixture will start to thin but eventually will thicken. When it does, take the pot off the stove and let the mixture cool
- Once it is cool, divide it into small containers and add a few drops of food coloring to each.
Make two or three balls, and you are ready for juggling. Invite a juggler to class to teach students how to juggle their felt balls. Smaller balls can be strung on strands of yarn to make bracelets.
