      Plasticize it "Jelly Jinx"

      food coloring
      cauldron (pot)
      food coloring
      measuring cup

      oven mitts

      Casting the Spell
      Pour 1/2 cup of milk into the cauldron.
      Add a few drops of your favorite food coloring.
      Use your oven mitts to hold onto the handle of your cauldron.
      Stir the milk as you bring your milk to a boil. (You will see the milk bubble as it boils).
      When the milk boils, slowly stir in 1 tablespoon of vinegar. Keep stirring.
      Within a few seconds, the mixture will become hard and rubbery.
      Let the rubbery glob cool. Once the glob has cooled, rinse it under cool water.
      Check it out - you can now play with your home grown plastic.

      The Science Behind the Spell:
      Vinegar is an acid.
      When the vinegar is added to the warm milk, a chemical reaction occurs.
