Recipes for Kids – Gak
Gak is a substance that acts like a liquid until pressure is applied to it. Then, it appears solid. Kids have a ton of fun playing with Gak and it’s a good substance to help them learn about liquids and solids.
1 cup Elmer’s glue
1 cup liquid starch
1. Pour glue and food coloring in plastic container.
2. Stir until color is thoroughly mixed in.
3. Add starch a little at a time, stirring with a spoon or kneading with your fingers.
