Combine an award-winning book with a favorite hands-on science activity and you get an instant success! Doreen Cronin, the New York Times best-selling author, brings life to Steve Spangler’s Insta-Worms™ activity. Never knowing whether he’s coming or going, this is the diary of a worm that eats his own homework, among other things. As children enjoy this hilarious story, their hands are busy mixing up a batch of Instant Worms. It’s a great integration of science and literature.
Squeeze a long stream of Worm Goo into the Activator Solution and you’ll get Instant Worms! You won’t believe your eyes as the honey-like “Worm Goo” changes into a rubbery solid the second the two solutions mix. This unique polymer formulation (no Borax or PVA used here) is safe to touch and weave between your fingers. The “hands-on science” factor is great for younger students while the strong content makes the activity perfect for upper-level students and teachers. If you love the classic “slime” activity, Insta-Worms™ is guaranteed to knock your socks off! Ages 6 and up.
You get enough materials to make about 12 meters (40 ft) of Worms!

What Does It Teach?
Explore the science of building polymers by cross-linking long chains of molecules. The process of making Instant Worms is faster and easier than the classic Slime recipe and it happens the very second the two liquids mix. Truly amazing!
