Home-made plastic!

Lewis and Finley made their own plastic with the recipe from How we Make Stuff. They said that it turned out a bit more crumbly than it should have done, but it was fun! Thank you so much for the picture!

Here is the recipe if you want to have a go:

What you need:
  • 1 cup of milk
  • 4 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • A bowl, a sieve and a spoon
  • A microwave or hob
With the help of an adult, heat the milk in the microwave for two minutes or in a pan until it is hot, but not boiling. Add the vinegar and stir. Pour the mixture through the sieve - careful, it will be hot! Spoon the lumps out of the sieve, then let them cool. When the mixture is cool enough, you can mould it into different shapes before it hardens.

Let me know how you get on!
