How to Do It
Ziploc baggies are made up of polymers that we call plastic. Polymers are long chains of molecules that are linked together. When you poke the pencil through the bag, the polymers remain bonded through cross linking that seals the hole around the pencil and therefore the water stays inside the bag.
