Kid-Friendly Elephant Toothpaste – Big Hit with Pre-Schoolers!

I love when our Boot-camp alumni teachers write in to tell us about how they are using science in their classrooms.  Shirley Snowden attended our Anaheim Boot-camp last year and emailed us with a great story about her experience with Kid-Friendly Elephant’s Toothpaste.

Thought you’d enjoy a picture of one of my super scientists.  We tried the kid friendly elephant toothpaste and the kid’s enjoyed it a lot.  We did it over and over again.  My friends are four and a half and they really like science!

The kids look like they are having a blast… When kids yell, “Do it again!”, it’s the ultimate compliment.  Keep up the good work Shirley and happy experimenting!

    My name is John Abbitt, I am a big fan of yours. I was doing an experiment earlier, with baking soda and vinegar. I used what you said about the oxygen and carbon in the ‘elephant toothpaste’ I thought that maybe baking soda and Hydrogen peroxide, and vinegar would make better foam and react quicker- so I tried it! It worked like a charm!
    I thought you might like to try it on one of your shows.
