Fun Project


This year’s library summer reading program is “Fizz, Boom, Read!”

We will be doing different science experiments.  The first day we made “GAK”, which was made with Elmer’s Glue, water and Borax.   I later came across this recipe where you use equal parts of Elmer’s Glue (which I bought the glitter glue) and Sta-Flo liquid starch.  It was fun and super easy to make. I know I’m not a little kid anymore but it’s fun to sit around and squish it!  Think of it as a stress reliever!  Elmer’s glitter glue comes in different colors, so you have your pick.  I like to just stare at the glitter glue in the bottle, so pretty,  I know, I’m weird that way!


Here’s a picture of the kids with the “GAK” they made…


and here’s a picture of the yummy dessert the librarian made for us!


Now go forth and have some squishy fun!!



  1. Oh my favorite color, love pink. What fun, yummy looking cake there Mindy, Blessings Francine.

    I would love a big ole slice of cake, too!

  3. This looks fun for the girls. I always liked the kind you got out of the gumball machines as a kid. Yep loved squishing it Amy

  4. What fun! That cake sure looks like it was tasty. Thank you for sharing about this with us :)

  5. Our library program has the same name! We've had a storyteller and bingo and next week a magician. We will have to make the gak at home, there are so many kids coming. I am so glad they are interested.
