1 file available upon enrollment✔️ 2 clear 16 oz plastic cups, glass cups or jars (plastic preferred for safety) ✔️ 1 bottle or 2 cups of tap water ✔️ 4 cups oil (Baby or cooking oil) *If using baby oil, please remove the cap so it be easily poured as it takes a while to squeeze it out of the tiny hole.)* ✔️ 2 food coloring (any colors) ✔️ 2 glow sticks (any two colors) No glow sticks? No problem. Add them in when you get them. ✔️ 4 Alka-Seltzer or Walmart's brand Equate tablets (NOT the gum version) or effervescent tablets.
