How to Make a Bouncy Ball
It’s a simple toy that provides hours of enjoyment – the bouncy ball! When your child sees one in a gumball machine, he likely clamors for some change. You spend the 25 or 50 cents only to discover the ball has bounced away into some land where lost bouncy balls live, never to be seen again. What if your child could make his own bouncy ball? Scratch that. What if he could make a whole bunch of bouncy balls? Then you’d never have to worry about finding the one that got away, because there would be countless others to take its place. In this activity, you'll not only make your own bouncy balls at home, but your child will also learn how polymers are made.
