Making Green GAK! For St. Patty's Day!

You mix 2 liquids and get a solid! Crazy huh? But we all had a blast with it!



Well most of us did... she didn't like the mixing process! AT ALL!


Even Ethan got in on the fun!


Once it was made the kids were all giggles!


Even Hannah liked playing with it. I think more then all the rest really! I gave them cups...when you put it in the cup and make a flat thing that covers the top of it then make a fist and punch it down it "farts" as the kids called it! They were laughing (ok we all were) so hard we couldn't even breathe!


So I thought I would share the recipe:

GAK

8 OZ of Elmer's Glue (can be generic)
3/4 c Hot water

Mix these 2 together in one container until glue and water are one liquid!

Then:

2 tsp Borax soap
1/2 c Hot water

Mix these 2 in seperate container until it looks like water again! All soap must be dissolved!

Then:

Mix both substances together using hands to mix do it like you would kneed braed almost and vwala... you have 2 liquids making a SOLID! and very happy kids!!!
