It's so fun to get your hands dirty and play with squishy, slimy, ooze! Here's how my son and I made homemade Gak. Since my son's favorite is green, he decided neon green was the perfect shade for his ooze.

What You'll Need

How We Did It

Neon Green Ooze

We started by dumping a 1/4 cup of water into a turkey roasting pan. The tall sides of the roasting pan helped keep the water from flowing over the edges.

My enthusiastic little Gak chef also added 1/2 cup of cornstarch.

He added three drops of food coloring (a little goes a long way!) to get the ooze to a satisfactory shade of neon green.

Now we're getting to the good stuff! My son loved mixing his concoction with his hands (although you can stir the mixture with a spoon if you'd like).

Ooze is fun to play with on its own, but of course my son wanted to add a toy into the mix! He had lots of fun slithering his rubber snake around in the ooze--and the snake created lots of cool textures and patterns. 

All in all, a fantastic (if a bit messy!) activity that my son really loved. Oh, and here's a tip: If your ooze starts to harden, just add a bit of water to make it fluid again.

I did this with my son (2.5yrs) and all he could say was "EWWWWWWWWW Gross" for the first 5 minutes. He had a blast and I'm sure we aren't finished with it for the day.
