Make some Polymer Bouncy Balls
Sand Paper Transfer
This one is a cinch!! How about a transfer onto a
T-shirt using sand paper??? Yup, easy peasy... a sandpaper technique printing that will keep anyone busy. Make from the $1 store, a T-shirt,
fine sand paper, crayons, fine sand paper, and an iron. After you color
your design on the sandpaper [remember it will be reversed] flip it and
place it on your T-shirt and then put a piece of parchment paper or
paper towel over it and press iron on it for at least 30 seconds pressing
hard to set transfer. Left one edge slowly and make sure it has
transferred, Iron a little bit more to melt the crayon design.
After you are done place some paper towels over it again without
the sand paper and iron slowly and then toss it in the dryer for about
20 minutes. When you launder it the 1st time wash lightly on low
speed alone. Enjoy!
Get yourself some marbles and the easiest and best way is to bake them in the oven. Put your Be sure to use clear marbles (It's useless to use solid colored ones.
You can't see the cracks on the inside.) in a pie pan. Bake them
in a preheated 500 degree (Fahrenheit) oven for about 20 minutes. There's no
need to go over 20 minutes, though it doesn't hurt them. I tried different times
and any left in for over 20 minutes all look the same. Have a metal bowl with
ice cold water ready. Remove your marbles and immediately dump them into the
water. The marbles crack, you will google at them and so will all your friends!
