GAK!

Do y'all remember GAK?! I used to make this stuff in YMCA camp when I was little!! It's amazingly easy to make and so much fun to play with. I never have Borax in the house so Biscuit hasn't had the pleasure of making Gak until today! To say "she had a blast" is a major understatement.

Mashing

Stretching

Creating

Stamping

Stretching again

Smooshing into a ball

Realizing the ball of Gak will bounce across the counter!

Making snowflake imprints

Seriously ~ the fun is never ending!

All you need is 8 oz of glue, Borax, water, and food coloring.

Pour 8 oz of glue into a large bowl. Be sure to get all of the glue out of the container.
We added a tiny bit of water to the empty glue bottle and shook it well. Then we poured that into the bowl as well to be sure we had every last drop of glue!!

Once all the glue is in the bowl add some food coloring and mix it in well.

Then add one teaspoon of Borax to a half cup of warm water. Mix it up.
Add the Borax and water solution SLOWLY to your glue. It turns into Gak quickly!

We provided Biscuit with a baking sheet to play on with cocktail skewers, play doh stampers, and cookie cutters. Although she mostly just used her little hands!

Happy Playing & Exploring!!
