Place small amounts of yellow and blue posterpaint or fingerpaint inside a ziplock plastic bag. Put sealing tape over the zip part to prevent “leaks”. Let the children rub the bag between their hands and discover the “magic color” they can create.
First you need to made a borax solution. A squeeze bottle works the best.
Pour in Borax detergent (about 1/2 inch covering the bottom of a 16oz. bottle — will make 100 gacks). Add water to the rest of bottle, shake well. Take Elmer’s glue, fill each child’s cup about 1/4. Then add paint have children stir the solution. Next add the Borax Solution (a good squirt into each cup) Have children stir their gack until there is no more liquid left. THIS DOES TAKE SOME PRACTICE (try it first w/o the kids) Hint: if the gack is still watery stir quickly and if that doesn’t help add more glue.

Oh do you know the gumball man, he comes just once a week.
When we put our nickels in the slot, our nickels in the slot, our nickels
in the slot, This is what we got.
_______________ and _______________ (children’s names) both got red
______________ and ________________ both got red, but ________ got blue.
Maybe someday we’ll be lucky, and instead of one gumball we’ll get two.

Song: (sung to “I’m a Little Teapot”)
I’m a little groundhog,
Furry and brown.
When winter comes
I sleep underground.
I’m curled up
As cozy as can be.
When it’s spring,
Please wake up me!
