GAK HOW TO
GakTM is one of the most amazing play compounds ever made!!
But first, make sure your Gak is perfect. Sometimes when Gak is first opened it's a little too moist. If you leave the container open for a few minutes and then pull out your Gak and knead it like dough for a few minutes, you will see that Gak becomes the perfect super-stretchy, amazing material we say it is! It can do some pretty amazing stuff. Like…
The Gak in your container is capable of stretching to ridiculous lengths!! We got it to go almost 100 feet!! To do this, you have to start slowly — making sure your Gak stretches evenly. Once you get it to around two feet long, you and a friend, or several friends, can keep stretching it until it gets as thin as spaghetti!! See how far you can go…
If you tear off pieces of Gak around one inch in diameter, you can get them to bounce really well. Try experimenting with different sized Gak blobs and see how high and how far you can bounce them!
Gak can blow the sickest bubbles!! You can do it in a bunch of ways so try to come up with your own, but here are our three favorites:
Solo bubbles: Take your Gak and spread it between the thumb and index fingers of both hands, making it into something that looks like pizza dough. Then close off the top side and bottom side, making a "pocket" in the middle. Blow into that pocket then pinch it off to trap air inside to make a bubble. Then squash it to make a loud bubble snap!
Straw bubbles: Take a little Gak and twist it around the end of a straw then pinch the Gak tight to the straw. Blow on the other end and you will puff up your Gak into a giant bubble. The more Gak and the more air you use, the bigger the bubbles will get!
Surface bubbles: If you have stone counter tops or a plastic cutting board, you can use these surfaces to blow big "surface bubbles" with Gak.Spread out a thin layer of Gak onto the stone or plastic surface —(please avoid anything wood, fabric or paper!!)— then slide a straw in from one side, between the surface and the Gak. Start to blow… Gak will come away from the surface in a big, jiggling bubble!! Add more straws and some friends and you can even blow clusters of bubbles or one giant Gak bubble!
Hmmm… what was that sound?!? Was it the dog? I think it was your sister… NOPE, it was Gak! Gak can make some seriously gross sounds. All you have to do is find any sturdy PLASTIC cup or storage container, fill it with your Gak, making sure you trap some air underneath and then press in with your hands to make some seriously gassy and gross Gak frrrts! You can also use your Gak splat container to make frrrt sounds – just plop your Gak in and press it into the drips and you'll hear all kinds of different sounds coming out!
SAFETY NOTE: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE – NEVER USE A GLASS CONTAINER TO MAKE GAK FRRRT!! It's dangerous and if you press too hard or drop the glass you could get hurt very seriously! Please, PLASTIC ONLY for making Gak frrrts!!!
