homemade GAK

Tonight Ella and I made some homemade GAK. I saw the recipe on one of my favorite blogs ourbestbites.
I wasn't sure if Ella was going to like it, I actually thought she was going to hate it. Ella is the kind of kid that has to finger paint with a paint brush because she doesn't like to get her hands messy with paint.
She proved me wrong though...

She LOVED the slimy, ooey, gooey GAK!
Here is what you need to make your very own GAK
-4 oz. of glue
-food coloring
-1 1/2 cups water divided

Dissolve 1 teaspoon of borax in 1 cup of water and set aside. Pour glue in bowl and add in 1/2 cup of water. Stir together and add your choice of food coloring. Then add in the other 1 cup of water that has borax in it. As you stir it will begin to thicken. Get your hands in there and enjoy your homemade GAK.
(sorry some of my pics are so yellow. I have these awesome fluorescent lights in my kitchen that don't always bring out the best in my photos)
