Gack ~ best for older children who will not ingest!


4 ounces of school glue
½ cup water + ¼ cup hot water
½ teaspoon Borax
Food coloring


  1. Pour the glue into a container with the ½ cup water. Mix with a spoon.
  2. Add the food coloring. Mix well with the spoon.
  3. In a separate small bowl, mix ½ teaspoon Borax with the ¼ cup hot water. Make sure to mix gently until the Borax is completely dissolved.
  4. Pour the Borax water into the glue water.
  5. Begin mixed and watch the Gack form! So cool!
  6. Then start mixing with your hands. Have fun! Did you know Gack will bounce?

(p.s. Beware of Gack and carpet. I have had it stick to carpet and fabrics before. Great thing to play with in the kitchen or outside.)
