Here’s what you need to make two-ingredient gak:

  • Add the glue to a bowl. If you want to color the gak, add a few drops of food coloring and mix it into the glue.
  • Slowly stir in the liquid starch, adding 1/4 cup at a time.
  • You’ll need to use your hands to incorporate the liquid starch into the glue. It’s kind of like kneading bread — just keep working it until it’s fully incorporated.
  • Let it sit for a few minutes and it will acquire a smooth consistency.

Then, it’s ready for play!

We had a lot of fun stretching out the gak.

It’s really cool how it will melt back down into itself if you let it sit long enough.
