Gak is amazing. It's shiny like Silly Putty and makes great noise when the kids squeeze it. I got it from my kids' preschool teacher. I've never made it, so prep time is approximate. Utensils: Small and large mixing bowl, measuring cups and spoons and a tray.


  1. Combine glue, tap water and food coloring in a bowl.
  2. In a larger bowl, dissolve the Borax in the hot water.
  3. Slowly add the glue mixture. It will thicken quickly and be difficult to mix Mix well and drain off excess water.
  4. Let stand for a few minutes then pour into a tray.
  5. Let dry for 10 minutes Store in resealable plastic bags. It will keep for 2 to 3 weeks.
