Elephant Toothpaste

Here is a fun experiment you'll have to try this summer. It's called Elephant Toothpaste.

Of course, when I yelled out "Elephant toothpaste fight!!!!!!", the experiment rose to a whole 'nother lever. (I do not recommend this portion of the experiment for little ones.)

OH! And here is a fun video to watch. Have you ever dropped a Mentos into Diet Coke?

Happy experimenting!!


  1. Looks like lots of fun! Thanks for the link to the fun science site. My kids will love trying this. (By the way I love your tunes!)

  2. Looks like a blast Nikki! :0) You are so fun!

  3. Ooh... I need to add this to my list of grownup experiments... That and the one with brake fluid and bleach... heh heh

  4. I have a dumb question- since this is made with the same hydrogen peroxide used to process hair color and bleach does it bleach things? I am just thinking of you gals with elephant toothpaste on your clothes and hair. That would be a funny conversation to have. "Oh, Nikki, did you get your hair highlighted?" "Nope. I had an elephant toothpaste fight." lol.

  5. Oh my gosh!! too cool..the boys will love it!!

  6. Randi--not a dumb question at all!
    It didn't bleach our hair or clothes, because when you add all the ingredients together in the pop bottle, the hydrogen peroxide breaks down somehow & essentially the bubbles coming out are just water. (I know I totally explained it wrong.)
    But still, have Elephant Toothpaste fights at your own risk. haha!

  7. I'm bookmarked it! That looks like a ton of fun!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. Every time you do, I do a little happy dance. For reals.
