Hi, it’s me Lily again!
How’s your week going? I hope you have fun. Mine is absolutely fine. I’m going to my friend’s birthday party! We do crafts and bubble art. I love it! Maybe one day I should write an article about bubble art. It’s really cool to do this!
Today we’re talking about something I really enjoy making and playing. It’s called Gak (my mom showed you how to make it years ago). It’s like plasticine, but it’s more fun and tastes worse, so definitely don’t stick it in your mouth because you’re making it with glue. The one we made today also bounces more than a regular Gak, but this time we wanted to add glitter to make a homemade glitter Gak! You can make a snake out of it, or you can make fun shapes out of a cookie cutter. Just don’t let it get near your clothes as it will stain and stick to your clothes.
Here’s how we do it…
– A 4 oz.Bottle of Elmer’s Glue
– ½ tsp. Borax (found in the laundry detergent section of the store)
– ¼ cup water
– plastic cup
– food coloring
– 1 tsp.fine flash
1. Gather all your supplies.
2. Start by pouring a bottle of glue into a bowl. Then fill the bottle with warm water and shake well. Pour into your bowl.
3. Add some food coloring. I bought Betty Crocker Neon Gel Food Colors and they did a great job! ! The neon makes it look great, but I ended up squeezing almost half the tube into the mix because I wanted it to be really bright. Add your glitter and mix well. shelved.
4. Add ¼ cup warm water to your glass. Add ½ tsp. Pour the borax into a water glass and stir until the borax dissolves. Then pour this mixture into a glue bowl. Start stirring and you’ll notice how it starts to get sticky. Use your hands to continue mixing and squeezing around. You will notice it becomes very gelatinous after a few minutes. Continue working with your hands until it becomes pliable.
We also tried making this with Glitter Glue, but thought it was harder to use. We also think this recipe from Glitter Gak is fun, but it’s not quite as pliable as a regular Gak recipe. 😉
We love ga!
I really think you will love this recipe. 😀 Let me know you like it.
