Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Boil Water
First thing you need to do is start boiling some water for your instMorph.
Step 2: Heat Thing Up
Once your water is boiling pour some InstaMorph into the hot water. I use about 1/4 cup.
You should see the white pellets turn clear and start sticking together.
Take a spoon and push the loose pellets into the clump of pellets and pull the clump out of the water.
Step 3: Make Your Lure
Take the clump of instMorph and mash it together with a spoon a few times. You should be able to pick it up and start molding it with your hands after about 10 seconds. But be careful it's hot.
Take your hook and eye screw and place it into the mold. Also a rattler if you have one.
At this point you can keep shaping your lure until you like how it looks. If it becomes hard to mold just toss it back into the hot water to loosen things up a bit.
Step 4: Go Fishing!
Thats it your ready to go fishing! You can always come back a reshape your lures by tossing it into some boiling water again.
See the lure with arms is the picture, I call this one the baby squirrel. I bet fish love squirrel!
Have fun! and let me know what you come up with!
