How to make Gak (Slime)

How to make Gak (Slime)
We had a few days of rain around here so we made some slime to occupy our time inside. Just two ingredients and you will be able to really impress your kids! To make simply mix equal parts of liquid starch and glue together. We placed 1/4 cup liquid starch into a sandwich bag and added about 3 drops of green food coloring. Next add in 1/4 cup glue Mix well. Take it out of the bag and have fun! Looking for more ways to impress your kids? Need a way to use up the rest of the starch? You will find other rainy day activities here. Thanks Laci for asking us how to make Gak.
