My kids love to play with playdoh. There are a bunch of recipes out there to make your own playdoh or buy it at the dollar store. But I discovered this really cool recipe which makes something more geared towards those younger kidlets who make a big mess with playdoh. You know what I’m talking about! Those little dried up bits that end of everywhere!
This is more of a slimy goop. Think gum that has been chewed and then stick on the bottom on a chair 🙂 It is a little more malleable and easier to play with (I think) for kids around 1-2 years. I have no idea if it is edible, so you need to be sitting with them to make sure that none of it goes in their mouth!
Give it a try! Here is the recipe for GAK.
- In the 1st bowl whisk 1/2 cup warm water and 1 tsp of Borax.
- In the 2nd bowl whisk 1 cup of glue, 1/2 cup of warm water, food colouring.
- Poor the glue mixture into the Borax mix.
- Let set for a minute then knead with your hands. Pour out any excess water. Then play!!!!!
