This recipe came from our favorite science book " Naked Eggs and Flying Potatoes " by the science king Steve Spangler
mixing the goodies
and do you remember how if you leave it unattended on the table, it spreads itself out?
adding the color green to another batch
We made 2 batches. 1 white, the other one green (because we didn't have blue) and combined them to show the movements of Glaciers... when left unattended.
Willow even gets in on the fun!
she stretches and pulls...
and she tries to mix up some more ...
Here we put a cookie sheet on an incline (books stacked up underneath one end) and put the Gak at the top of it
it feels so cold too, just like ice
making foot prints
which disappeared shortly after leaving it unattended!
Cai decides to play with colored pencils to make a "level"! Line work and geometry. Everything is a "level" to him.
The boys pictures of the Glacier Gak for their portfolio
There are plenty of recipes of this Gak online and it is so much fun to play with polymers. We put the used Gak in a ziplock and pull it out for some stretching, snapping, putty-like ball of clay fun, almost daily! Enjoy! It's GREAT to be a homeschooler
or a mama! or someone that works with kids! or any of the above :)
