How to make Gak (Slime)

Surprise Me!

We had a few days of rain around here so we made some slime to occupy our time inside. Just two ingredients and you will be able to really impress your kids!


To make simply mix equal parts of liquid starch and glue together.

We placed 1/4 cup liquid starch into a sandwich bag and added about 3 drops of green food coloring.


Next add in 1/4 cup glue


Mix well. It will start to form a solid blob. There might be a  bit of liquid that will not mix in, just remove the blob of slime and discard the bag with the extra liquid.


Take it out of the bag and have fun!


Looking for more ways to impress your kids? Try making oobleck!

Need a way to use up the rest of the starch? Try making some marbleized paper.

You will find other rainy day activities here.
