Gak is a well loved sensory play item at Art and Soul, but recently we had to make more. I decided to try a new recipe for Gak this time because I didn't love using Borak, although the children didn't add it in, I like the idea of them making the whole recipe. Our previous post on gak can be found here: http://artandsoulpreschool.blogspot.com/2012/01/learning-about-molecules-and-making-gak.html
The recipe for our new Gak is simple:
1 Cup Elmer's Glue
1/2-3/4 Liquid Starch
Add the glue and food coloring to a bowl, and stir. Next slowly add the liquid starch sirring and eventually kneaded the mixture. It is amazing how little time it takes for it to transform, and then it is ready for play!
Adding the glue
We made two batches so we had different colors.
