This gooey glob of fun is NOT edible. Beware: it will stick to clothing and furniture.  But please don't let this dissuade you. Kids love it.  Once, we mixed up an enormous batch for a halloween party and added lots of plastic spiders to the mix.  It was great.  

Gak - Temple Emanu El preschool cookbook 

1 c. water 
1 c. white glue 
food coloring to your liking 
1 1/3 c. hot water 
4 t. borax 

Combine 1 cup water, glue and food coloring in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, mix 1 1/3 c. water with Borax until it dissolves.  Slowly pour water and glue mixture into Borax and water mixture. It will form a glob. Roll it around with your hand a few times. Remove the glob from any excess water and knead it a few times.  Have fun with it!  Store in plastic bag for next time.  
Note - if mixing a large batch, I was able to find elmers glue by the gallons at a teacher supply store.
