Elephant Toothpaste

This was so fun and easy. Here’s what you need:


-1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide

-a few drops of dish washing soap

-food coloring

-a packet of dry yeast

-1/4 cup of warm water


Steps:


1. Pour the hydrogen peroxide, food coloring, and dish soap into an empty bottle.

2. Gently rotate the bottle in a circular motion to mix everything together.

3. In a separate cup mix the yeast to the water.

4. When you’re ready use the funnel to pour the water and yeast into your bottle.


How it works: the yeast works as a catalyst in the hydrogen peroxide and releases the hydrogen leaving water and oxygen. The soap then catches oxygen in its bubbles and causes it to foam.


Have fun! 🐘
