Gak: Fine Motor and Sensory Fun


Gak is a great support for fine motor development. At the same time, it can fulfill a sensory need for many children. We often will set them out with scissors or just on its own to see what kids will do with it. Many will stay engrossed for hours at a time! The recipe is super easy to make!

Gak Recipe

White glue
Food coloring

Mix these two ingredients together in a large plastic bag:
2 C white glue
1 1/2 C warm water which already contains food coloring

In a separate bowl mix together:

Finally, combine the two mixtures into the large plastic bag until it is a thick slimy consistency.
