Gak is a gooey substance that is almost a cross between the consistency of play putty and play dough. In the past, most folks called it flubber. Kids love it . If you want to impress your children with your scientific knowledge and cooking prowess, you may want to create a batch of Flubber–Gak. No matter what, you’re bound to have fun.
Following is the recipe.
Caution: However, since the recipe uses a little borax, you won’t want to use this with toddlers or youngsters that want to nibble or put all they touch into their mouths. The poison control center says the amount of borax in the recipe wouldn’t hurt anyone, but just to be sure, we believe it is better to use with children that will play and not nibble on their Flubber-Gak.
Be sure to supervise creation and play regardless of ages involved. Have Fun!!!!
