GAK! is a perfect sensory activity for kids of all ages and abilities. When stored in an airtight container, the fun can keep rolling indefinitely. Mix it up with lots of different add-ins. This diversion activity promotes fine motor enhancement.

What You Need

  • Corn Starch
  • Water
  • Large Bowl
  • Food Coloring
  • Add-Ins*


  • Pour 1 box of cornstarch into large bowl.
  • Slowly add water (with food coloring, if wanted) and mix with hands until “liquid solid”. You should be able to squeeze it and form a ball for a second before it “melts away”.

*Add-ins are optional and may include LEGOs, plastic animals, blocks, etc. Be creative!

All activities should be supervised by an adult.
