We had a cheap airplane pillow bust open a few weeks ago leaving a trail of little teeny tiny foam balls all over the house.  The kids were obsessed with how they felt and I was obsessed with getting rid of them.  We compromised and made FLOAM.  


2 tsp. Borax
1/2 Cup Warm Water
1/4 Cup White Elmer's Glue
(If you don't have an old pillow like I did,  you can either order the foam balls from Amazon-see above link- or pick them up at a craft store)
Drop or Two of Food Coloring

Combine Borax and 1/4 cup of warm water stir until Borax is dissolved.
In a separate bowl combine glue and remaining water (1/4 cup) and then add food coloring.
Add the foam balls/beads/pellets to the glue mixture and then add the borax.  Mix will with little fingers.
