Even though these aren't as bouncy as a store-bought ball, they're still a lot of fun to make and play with.
The ball will start out sticky and messy, but will solidify as you knead it. Once the ball is less sticky, continue rolling between your hands until it is smooth and round! You can store your plastic ball in a sealed ziploc bag when you are finished playing with it. (The ball tends to flatten out a bit when sitting and does not normally last longer than a couple of days before drying out).
HOW TO MAKE A BOUNCING POLYMER BALL: borax (found in the laundry section of the store), cornstarch, white glue (e.g., Elmer's glue - makes an opaque ball) or blue or clear school glue (makes a translucent ball), warm water, food coloring (optional).
