Pin #26 Elephant Toothpaste Experiment

Inspiration Pin

It was a rainy, rainy day and I'm trying to get over a cold, so we spent the day inside and the kids were getting bored. Luckily, I remembered this pin and we had all the ingredients in the cupboard. I'm not sure how much the kids understood the concept of chemical reactions, but they really enjoyed watching it grow and getting their hands messy.

Pretty simple list of ingredients:
1 tsp. yeast
2 Tbsp. warm water
a few drops of dish soap
a few good drops of food coloring
1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide

First-  Combine the yeast and warm water together

Second- Combine the dish soap, food coloring, and hydrogen peroxide
Finally- Add the yeast mixture into the bottle and watch it grow!
