Gak (or Goop). This stuff is amazing! Super easy to do. Tip: Mix the borax/water solution in very slowly. Little at a time stirring constantly. Will go from sticky/wet, to nearly solid very quickly. Can divide the glue/water solution out into different cups, add different food coloring, and slowly add borax/water solution to each one to make smaller amounts of different colors. Fun for little kids to hide plastic animals in, or press to make animal stamps. So great!!!
