As stated before, Nova loves mermaids and sensory bottles! Well we had this small mermaid that came out of a fizzing egg from the dollar store.

We've done this 100 times since then and it is hands down Novas favourite experiment! Elephant toothpaste is so easy to do… Continue reading Elephant Toothpaste!
