Pumpkin is experimenting with Polymers this week using this kit that we purchased at our state homeschool convention last May. The first experiment was a “magic trick” so we took a little video so Daddy wouldn’t miss out on the fun.
This is what the Polymer looked like when we took it out of the cook and shaped it into a ball.

Later, we dissected a diaper (luckily we have quite a few of those around the house) so that Pumpkin could see that disposable diapers use the same type of Polymer that we used in this experiment.
