Good evening scientists! My little scientist and I got glitter inspired today and decided to make our own Glitter Play-dough. It was a bit messy but a lot of fun.
Large Mixing Bowl
Glitter (Bigger specks of glitter work better then the really tiny stuff)
Dry Measuring Cups (1 Cup, 1/2 Cup, Table Spoon)
Wet Measuring Cup
- Measure out 2 cups of flour and about 1/2 cup of glitter and add to your mixing bowl.
- Add in 1/2 cup of water and 2 Tablespoons of vegetable oil to the mixture and mix thoroughly. You will need to use your hands to finish kneading the dough. If the mixture feels very sticky after it has been kneaded together then add a bit more flour.
In this investigation we created a new substance from flour, water, vegetable oil, and glitter. This is an example of a chemical change. In a chemical change a new substance is created that can never be changed back into the original form.
