Melting gallium spoon: It melts as you stir with it

Kids, remember Gallium from this video? Then let’s watch this spoon stir.

This spoon made from 99.998% pure gallium metal melts at 86F/30C! Great for demonstration purposes (chemistry/physics classes). After the spoon is reduced to a liquid puddle on the bottom of the cup, the gallium can easily be made solid again to make new gallium spoons (with the DIY kit), over and over!

With a melting point is 29.7646 °C or 85.5763 °F, you can melt metal in your hand: Get 20g of Gallium on Amazon. You can also buy a Gallium Spoon Mold + 100g of Gallium to make your own spoons.
