Home Made Gak Play Slime

This week Tiny Adventurers enjoyed playing with Gak play slime. This is a home made slime that keeps because it is a polymer, and is great fun because it behaves is very interesting ways!

This slime can be cut, stretched and takes the shape of moulds. It doesn’t hold it’s shape and slowly oozes. It is a plastic, is not edible and it is dry to touch!



The ingredients for Gak are PVA Glue and Borax powder. There are plenty or instructions for making Gak to be found on the web, here is a good set for GAK in five minutes! Borax is hard to get hold if in the UK and needs to be handled with care. I purchased mine on line. Have fun!
