How to Make Your Own Elephant Paste

DISCLAIMER ~ This post is sponsored by STEM Camp. All opinions are my own. I only share content that excites me and I feel would be beneficial to Canadian Moms. And what Mom wouldn’t want to learn how to make Elephant Paste at home with their child? Right?!

Yes, you read that right. This post teaches you how to make Elephant Paste at home. And I must warn you, be prepared to make a MESS and HAVE FUN!!! In our home, when we do messy activities and experiments, I always cover the floor or table with a splat mat. If you don’t have a special mat for messes, I encourage you to cut open a large black/green garbage bag to protect your surface and to make for an easier clean up. If you are doing this experiment during the nicer weather, you might also want to consider doing it outside – even less clean up is a bonus!

You need to collect the following items in order to make your own Elephant Paste:

  • 40-volume hydrogen peroxide liquid
  • Package of dry yeast
  • Warm water
  • Liquid dish soap
  • Food colouring
  • Measuring Cups and Measuring Spoons
  • Plastic Beaker or large plastic cup
  • Small plastic cup
  • Safety goggles and rubber gloves
  • Funnel
