Elephant Toothpaste

I’ve seen this on other homeschooling blogs and on the Steve Spangler website. It’s a fun experiment called, Elephant Toothpaste.

Your child will need:

Food coloring

20-volume hydrogen peroxide, which you can buy from a beauty supply store.

Liquid Dawn dish soap

A dry yeast packet (Mix one-third to half of the contents with warm water in a separate small dish.)

A funnel

An empty, clean soda bottle, with the label removed.

A disposable tray to contain the mess.

Marcus explains the steps pretty well in this video so I’ll let him take it from here.
