I always try to be prepared with activities to do when with my young nieces and nephew!

And this past trip to California gave me another chance for us to play together again!

So…for some CLEAN fun we made some SOAP CLOUDS!

Yes, I said…SOAP CLOUDS!

And then when we were done…we made small shaped soaps!

Oh yes, we did!

Here’s is how we did it!

1) Get a bar of IVORY soap…for every child (of any age)!

2) Place a bar of soap on paper towel in a microwave!

Yes, I said…place a bar of IVORY soap on a paper towel in a microwave.

Take out the turn table and put the time for around 2.5 minutes (stop when it looks ready to you).

3) Watch the bar of soap grow into a “cloud!”

4) Play with Soap Cloud!

5) Then start mushing it down to a powdery consistency!

6) Add water to make it more liquid…but not too much water!

7) Put into forms (we used their Mom’s cookie cutters)! And let sit until completely dry.

A lot of Cookie Cutters!

8) And now you have your own personally shaped soaps!

A very cool, messy but clean, and fun activity…that keeps the kids busy for quite some time!

And the kitchen smells like nice clean soap afterwards!

Good Times with mis sobrinos!
