Cordelia makes plastic.......





I found this book in our new library this week and just knew that both girls would LOVE it, it was right up their street. Its called Glorious Things to Make and Do, the first thing Cordelia tried to make was plastic, she did really well mixing vinegar and milk (it smelt terrible!) and heating it up in the pan until it curdled and then she had to sieve it through until it was like white blobs. She then left it in a glass jar for a couple of hours and then she had to rinse it with water whilst it was in her hands but ooooopppppssss it went straight down the drain and into pieces. It turns out we needed white wine vinegar not malt vinegar! Still we will try it again. Pippi hasn't got a look in with the book yet as its barely left Cordy's hands. Next up toffee mmmmmmmm...........
