It's Sunday again. Do you still know what this means? It means we had Science fun :) I've been reading about the elephant toothpaste experiment everywhere. Do you know this phenomenon when you think about something for the first time or out of the blue and then you find the whole universe thinking about it with you at the same time? To do this experiment, you have to use Hydrogen peroxide. All of a sudden, the dollar store had it in its new arrivals and I was so glad. Unfortunately, it has 3% only which is relatively week but it will do. So, you will need:
  • a soda bottle
  • hydrogen Peroxide
  • dish washing soap
  • warm water
  • dry yeast
  • food color (optional)

Food color

Add 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide

1 squirt of dish soap

Mix well for 30 seconds

Add 2 tablespoons of warm water.

Add 1 table spoon of dry yeast to the water.

Stir well.

Add to the bottle.

Look at that expression :)

Here, she told me to make it stop, lol.

Touching it.

We did the experiment one more time but this time using red food color and doubling all the ingredient quantities.

Don't you love it?

I always give instructions or set the rules before we begin but with this, I did not. I wanted to know how Sarah will react with it. I know it might be obvious to everyone but I'm still exploring my kids' potentials. Anyway, Sarah did it all on her own and I was so pleased. I even prepared dinner while she was busy doing it but at the beginning she laid all the panels in front of her and added a piece here and there. She kept doing this for 15 minutes and then she told me she wants to do the sun. So, I took away the other panels for her to be able to focus and that was all the help I offered.

Then, the fish :)

Getting to ground level to see which part is missing ;)

And then, a flower.

And finally, a butterfly :)

Now, Farida's turn. I introduced our treasure box today. She was so excited about it, she has very curious eyes :)

Of course, you can guess who was standing beside her,
ready to jump in and play with the box.
Farida so excited to look at the mirror.

How am I supposed to hold all these with my tiny hands, mama?

Here, she was banging her hands over and over and over.

Tasting the sponge. 
By the way, her fingers couldn't hold the bottle with the rice.

Can I eat this stone?

Please note, you have to do this under very close supervision. Do what you feel comfortable in doing and leave what you don't. 
Thank you for reading, come back soon and I promise, we'll have more fun :)


  1. Omg Farida's hair! I love it!

    And she looks like she loved her box!

    Sarah is so smart Sherine, I cannot believe she can do that with the shapes, that is AMAZING. And the science experiment too. It is like you have a 10 year old in an (almost) 3 year old's body!

    1. I love Farida's hair too ;)
      Thank you Liz for your nice words, we <3 you :)

  2. It looks like you guys had a fun week! Your girls look close to my children's ages--mine are 4 and 1. We also did the elephant toothpaste a couple months ago and loved it!

    1. I'm so glad your children loved it, isn't it amazing seeing the expressions on their faces?

  3. You have been busy! I love the science experiment - that is so cool! We will have to try it out soon!

    1. Andrea, you have to try it, you'll love it even more :)

  4. MSA !! my little princess ♥♥
