This week we are experimenting with Reindeer Toothpaste!

Things you will need:

  • A clean 12-16 oz plastic bottle (one with a narrow opening is best)  ( large water or pop bottle)
  • 1/2 cup of  20-volume (6%) hydrogen peroxide liquid
    (This is a higher concentrated hydrogen peroxide that you can find at a beauty supply store. It is often called “developer”.) 
  • Make sure it's the clear one not the cream one
  • 1 tablespoon of dish soap 
  • food coloring (optional, about 8-10 drops) 
  • plastic glitter (optional, metal glitter may react with the peroxide so make sure it is plastic glitter
  • peppermint essential oil (a few drops for that wintery smell) 
  • 1 tablespoon of active dry yeast (1 packet) 
  • warm water 
  • small cup or bowl 
  • funnel (optional)
