Deci's last day of her speech preschool was last week.  She will start again in the Fall but one of her favorite things about her class is that they get to play with this play-doh(ish) stuff they call Gak.  So we asked for the recipe and I thought I would share it with you guys.  Super easy.
What you will need:
1. 2 cups water
2. 1 Tbs Borax
3. food coloring
4. 1 cup Elmer's White Glue
First Mix: 1 cup water, 1 tbs Borax and food coloring together in a bowl.
Then in another bowl mix: 1 cup water and 1 cup Elmer's glue.
Then, slowly pour the first bowls contents into the 2nd bowl while mixing together.
It will look something like this:
At this point, I thought I had messed something up because it wasn't mixing together.  I then put my hands in the bowl and started kneading it together.  It took a little bit and I still wasn't quite sure I got it right when I passed it to Deci to play with but after a few minutes it turned out perfect!
This was a full hour of entertainment a few nights ago!
AND I'm pretty sure if you store it in an airtight container it will last a while!

What in the world is Ewwwbleck?? Did I miss out on something as a child?? I've played with something similar to this before and people called it flubber...I think. :)
