The next few posts will be old news; if you're my facebook friend, you've already seen the photos, but I thought I might as well document here too.

We made gak.

Gak is liquid starch and school glue.

The CVS near me didn't have liquid starch; all they had was spray starch, which I guess is liquid if you spray enough of it. We made due with the spray.  It might have turned out better with the real liquid stuff. I hate my CVS.

Anyway, we put some glue in a container and then sprayed it with some starch and stirred. Joshua decided he wanted it to be red, but we got pink instead.  Red never comes out as red. We continued to spray the glue and stir it up till it all stuck together at which point Joshua began his play.

It was actually pretty cool, though it didn't stick together the way I've seen some gaks. Maybe that's the difference between spray and liquid, who knows.


  1. So I just realized I already posted about our gak experience. Oh well. You get to read it twice.

  2. It's been so long since that update that I'd forgotten. It still felt like a new post. Yay new posts! Yay gak!
