Borax is used as a polymer in this recipe for gak, aka. goop, slime, flubber... If you do not already have a box of Borax at home, you are missing out! This has many uses for even your laundry, bathroom, kitchen and arts & crafts!
You Will Need:
1/2 teaspoon Borax
1/2 cup Elmers White Glue
2 x 1/3 cup of Water
zip lock baggie
Mix together glue 1/3 cup warm water and food coloring (glue solution ) in a small bowl.
In a medium zip lock baggie, mix Borax and 1/3 cup warm water.(Borax solution)

You can squish it...
Make it droop...
Stare at it...
Put it in cups and make obscene sounds....
I will warn you though, I think people 25 and up enjoyed it more than the toddlers!
