We had the BEST time doing this little experiment this morning and I can't wait to do more creative activities like this one with my kids.
To make your own Elephant Toothpaste, all you need is Hydrogen Peroxide, a package of yeast, a few squirts of dish soap and some water.
Step by step instructions:
•Begin by adding one package of yeast into 1/2 cup of very warm water. Mix well and set to the side.
•In your narrow necked bottle, add 1/2 cup Hydrogen Peroxide or if you're using two small bottles like we did, add 1/4 cup to each bottle.
•Add any food coloring, sprinkles or glitter to the Hydrogen Peroxide.
•Squirt a little dish soap into each bottle.
•Swirl it together carefully.
•Place your bottle into a container to catch the foam (we used baking sheets), and then add the yeast mixture through a funnel (we added half to each bottle).
•Quickly remove the funnel and enjoy the explosion!
