Making Homemade Gak
Did you play with Gak as a kid?
Have you ever made any?
It may be one of the funnest things to see transform into a semi-solid substance. Just as much fun for me to make it as for my kids to help pour and watch as I mix……
……and then squish their little fingers into.
(and much more fun than just buying.)
I found this recipe here
Then gathered all of my supplies.
(I bought the liquid starch at Wal-Mart over by the laundry detergent.)
Mixed the food coloring in with the glue…
Then started adding the liquid starch a little at a time.
Make sure to just add a bit of the starch add a time. Soon you’ll have to knead the Gak to incorporate more of the starch. Just keep at it……it’ll work. (and I didn’t even use all of the starch it called for…..so just see how it goes.)
Then let those little chubby hands test it out.
And figure it all out.
And play and giggle their little hearts out.
