How to Make Leprechaun Gak for St. Patrick's Day
- In a large mixing bowl, slowly mix the Borax, glue and warm water until a soft goo forms. You may need to knead the mixture for a bit until the gak takes shape.
- Add in the food coloring a few drops at a time. The darkness of the color will depend on how much coloring you add to the gak. Mix the ingredients well until the gak is a shade of your liking.
- You can now drop the gold coins into the bowl. Let them sink in and hide.
