Fun with Soap!

Today we decided to do something fun as a family.  I just received a box of goodies to try out and review and one of them was a bar of pure Ivory soap.

We made soap clouds!


1.  Take a fresh bar of Ivory soap (other brands will not work) and place it in the microwave with a piece of parchment paper or paper towel.
2.  Start your microwave on high at 3 mins.
3.  Let your kiddos watch and see the cloud grow, I stopped the microwave after a little over 1 min, use your own judgement on when to stop it.
4. Enjoy!

Here's a video of our experiment in action:

Jay played and molded it and once it went into crumbles we put it in a bowl and mixed with very little hot water and it made a dough.  He used cookie cutters to make his own little soaps.  Anything to make bathtime a little more fun!
