Cut open a diaper (pampers etc) and rip the "stuffing" apart then put it all into a ziplock bag and shake it until you see a small collective of polymer powder at the bottom. This powder will turn an entire glass of water into gel, and will keep the water in the glass when turned up-side-down. Then for extra credit, add some salt to the gel and watch it turn back into water.
