Gooey Gak

When I managed to peel my eyes away from Twilight today, Harrison and I made "Gooey Gak."
It is like the slime you see on Nickelodeon. And after it was finished it occupied him enough to give me a good hour of reading uninterrupted. So win-win!
We'll share the recipe with you!
Grandma gave us the Borax...I guess grandma's keep laundry booster in their house!
The paint we used. You can use any really but if I were you...try to get something washable like tempera or fingerpaints.
You will make two separate solutions:
{solution A}
1 cup water
1 cup white glue
2 Tbsp. liquid paint (we used washable!) or 7-10 drops food coloring
Mix in bowl separate from B.
1 1/3 cups warm water
4 tsp. Borax laundry booster
1. Mix solution A.
2. In separate bowl, mix solution B until Borax dissolves.
3. Slowly pour bowl A into bowl B--do not mix.
4. Roll solution A into solution B 4-5 times with your hands. (Best part!)
5. Lift solution A (a chunk) out of solution B and knead with your hands for 2-3 minutes.
6. Store in ziploc or airtight container!
7. If your name is Harrison, put the bowl on your head and say your brains are coming out...
Our gak.
