Recipe for GAK or Slime

We have been getting ready for Halloween around here! I was (crazy) enough to volunteer for my son's 4th grade Halloween craft in his class tomorrow. My son has hit the..."I'm too cool to make kiddy crafts" phase. So, I had to get creative.  I volunteered to help them make slime.

This is a great recipe! My friend Amy, a 3rd grade teacher, directed me towards this recipe for Gak.  She makes this concoction every year.
It's from Steve Spangler Science, recipe for GAK
(Check their site out for full directions.)
You will need:
Borax (1 tsp mixed with 1/2 c. water)
8 oz.Elmer's Glue
Water (fill empty glue bottle with warm water and shake)
Green food Coloring ( couple drops)
Mix glue and warm water. 
Add in combined Borax and Water,
Mix away until you get the right consistency!
Seal in a plastic Ziploc when you're done playing!
Lovely! :)

You can add some bugs too...if you like!  

Now...I need to go make several dozen bat, ghost, and pumpkin sugar cookies!
My other son is in need of Halloween treats for his class.
See you soon!

I LOVED gak when I was a kid! My teacher told me it was a "plasma" that was discovered on another planet. Of course I believed it!

I wasn't allowed to play with Gak or slime and those coin machines the slime isn't that slimy. Now that I'm all grown up and moved out, it's on! Thank you for the recipe!
