Step 4: Done!

Picture of Done!
Now the only thing left to do is use it!
Bounce it, juggle it etc.

The bouncy ball should be stored in a plastic bag, and if it breaks or gets distorted, just squeeze it back together into a ball shape.

And for a pink bouncy ball you can use phenolphthalein instead of alcohol. The only thing is, that it is not as easy available.

does it dry? If I add 4 cups to 1 cup will i get a bouncy ball?

my bouncy ball breaks very easily. how can i get it so it doesn't break apart? and it also dries out quickly. I am using rubbing alcohol instead of ethanol. is that the problem?

I made this with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students for a teaching project in AP Chemistry. After asking my Chemistry teacher whether it would kill me or not, and getting the inconclusive answer of; "No, but -I- wouldn't," I licked it. I'm still in tip-top shape. :)

This is just a little question. are the materials you're using safe and non-toxic? And what is the appropriate age for this bouncy ball?
