When you first think of Crayola, you probably think of crayons, markers and amazing amounts of color, right? We do聽too. But Crayola has stepped it up a notch in the realm of science! This gooey liquid they鈥檝e created turns into a bright (gently) sticky solid within 15 minutes. Your little DIYers are going to have a ball mixing the colors together and creating their own science experiment. Moms, I鈥檓 sure you鈥檙e thinking, 鈥済ooey sticky liquid 鈥 that sounds like a huge mess!鈥 Don鈥檛 worry 鈥 the mess is a breeze to clean up! Crayola, we will forever thank you for that.

Instructions:

1. Squeeze solution B into the clear plastic container until it reaches the B fill line. Then add your favorite color until the solution reaches the A fill line.

2. Cap the solution and drop it into the orange container. Hit the green lever about 20 times until the solution is all shaken up.

3. Pour the solution into your favorite mold. This is the perfect time to add glitter or extra color to your cling!

4. Give your cling聽about 15 minutes to dry, and then use the red flat tool to peel the cling out of the mold.

Create marbled cling by adding drops of another color straight into the mold. Use the red stir stick to swirl the colors together.

One of our favorite parts of this DIY is the science behind mixing the solution and colors together. Try playing around with it yourself. Create lime green or a bold fall orange.

Hack alert! Help your kids create their own shapes using an X-ACTO聽knife (make sure to help聽them use the knife 鈥 best to聽avoid injured fingers!). Pour聽three rounds of the cling solution into the square mold on the base of the Cling Creator. Wait about 20 minutes for it to dry, and then peel out the square with the red tool.
