Very last minute present that even the teen boys enjoy (albeit secretly)

Flubber, Gak, slime or silly putty

You can't make real Flubber, as only Fred MacMurray and Robin Williams have that recipe. And you can't make real silly putty because that is a closely guarded secret, but you can make a slime type variation of the products. And not only is this an enjoyable gift, but a science project that if fun to create. (something you can do with the kids while they are on break)

2 1/2 cups warm water
2 cups white glue
3 teaspoons Borax
food coloring

Combine 1 1/2 cups water with the glue. Mix in the food coloring.  In a different bowl, combine the borax and 1 cup water. Mix well. Poor the borax mix into the glue mix, then get your hand dirty. Squeeze until thoroughly combine until only a tablespoon of liquid remains.. It will be sticky. Allow to sit for a few minutes. Once ready it can be stored in an air tight container for about 3 weeks.

And it bounces too!
