Recipe by Mimi in Maine
This is the slippery stuff that oozes through a kids fingers. Lot of fun and feels like water.

I lost my recipe for gak so had to find a new one. This is similar to mine but I wish I could remember the amount of water I used. 4 oz. is to much to mix with glue and to much to mix with the borax. After I got my make clump of gak I poured off about 2 extra oz. of water what would not stir in. My next batch I'm going to try 3 oz. of water in each mixture. Also be sure that that the glue, water and food color is thoroughly mixed. Keep mixing until you can't see water. It makes a difference when added to the borax mixture.
- 4 ounces elmer's glue
- 4 ounces water
- food coloring (as desired)
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons borax
- 4 ounces hot water
