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
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.
