Kid’s Craft: Let’s Make Some Homemade Gak! It’s Squishable Sqeezeable fun!

Gak My daughter told me the other day that we needed to make some homemade Gak. It is every kids biggest dream to have mass quantities of Gak!! It is the incredible, squishable, squeezeable, squashable, stretchable, bounceable, ploppable, poppable stuff. You pick it up and your cannot put it back down!! The downfall to Gak is the cost, you can check out Gak here on Amazon. I think that you just may like this hot recipe I have got for you today that will turn Gak into a very affordable but messy activity for you kids. The great thing about Homemade Gak is not only will they enjoy making it but they will have the satisfaction of making it themselves so it’ kind of two activities, making it and playing with it!



Here is what you will need

  • TWO 4 oz. bottles of Elmer’s Glue
  • – 1 tsp. Borax (If you have never seen Borax just click here you can also find it in the laundry isle at Walmart)
  • – Water
  • – Plastic Cup
  • – Bowl
  • – Food Coloring
Here is what you need to do
  1. Gather all your supplies together
  2. Begin by pouring both glue bottles in your bowl. Fill both empty bottles with water, shake, poor into bowl.
  3. Add some food coloring (more for a brighter color, less for pastel) this might be a good time to teach your kids how to make different colors by mixing them together.
  4.  Add 1/2 cup warm water to your cup (not in the bowl). Add 1 tsp. borax to the water and mix until borax dissolves. Then pour this into your glue bowl. Start stirring and you will notice how it starts becoming stringy. Keep mixing by using your hands and squishing around. The more you squish it the gakier it becomes!!
  5. Watch your kids play for hours!!! When they are done just put it in a ziploc baggie and save it for another day.
