Homemade Toothepaste

It doens't look very appealing so next time we might use a food color in it and they want to try mint so it will probably be blue!

Makenzie brusing with it...she says it tastes great!

Makenzie has been asking me about making our own homemade toothpaste so I searched around on the interent and found a recipe that was super easy. Tonight we made vanilla homemade toothpaste and Makenzie LOVED it!

The ingredients

What you need:
4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp flavoring (vanilla, cinnamon or mint)
1 tsp water
Plastic container (we used an old film canister)

What you do:
Mix baking soda and water until it is about the consistency of regular toothpaste.
Mix in salt.
Add a few drops of your chosen flavoring.
Mix well and store in air tight plastic container.
