Steve Spangler GAK {Preschool Science}

SHARE THIS POST:

We love Steve Spangler’s GAK in our home. Seriously the coolest DIY slime out there.

Give it a go.

Integrate Science learning by including your children in the making process. With my preschooler we talked about the ingredients and how they combine to create a new material, a polymer. That is pretty much where it stopped for us. The great thing about Steve Spangler’s experiments is that you can get as intricate in the scientific details as you want depending on the (age of) the child.

What is the deal with GAK?

Here are a few things we do with our GAK:

Let it sit on the side of a table and slowly but surely “drip” down to the floor in a string, very cool fashion.
