Here are all your materials: a dish filled with tap water, construction paper (again, we found this light-colored paper didn't work as well as the dark paper seen in the other pictures!), masking tape and clear fingernail polish.
Hold the piece of paper in the water.
The nail polish should look something like this when put in the water.
Let the Frozen Film sheet dry.
If you did everything correctly, you'll have happy students like these!
