 When we went to check out a pre-school for my son, Griffin, they had a station with gak.  Griff went right over to the gak and started playing with it while I talked to the teachers.  That was back in May.  He hasn't stopped talking about the gak since!  Every time I would bring up pre-school, he would say, "I can't wait to play with the gak!"  Since gak is only a special occasion thing at pre-school, we decided to make some of our own.  I just googled gak and found this recipe.  DO NOT EAT IT!  It is only for play.  It was super easy and kept Griffy busy for hours!!  Can't beat that.

1 8oz. bottle Elmer's Glue
warm water
1 tsp. Borax (found in the same isle as laundry detergent)
1/2 cup warm water

Pour glue into a mixing bowl.  Fill up empty bottle of glue with warm water and shake.  Pour water over the glue and mix well.  Dissolve 1 tsp. Borax in 1/2 cup warm water.  Add to glue mixture and stir until it thickens and becomes gak.

*You can add some food coloring to glue mixture to color gak.
