Marvelously Made – The School for Young Children sent home this soap experiment for us to try.
Take a chunk of ivory soap on a paper plate and put it in the microwave for 45 seconds. Gather around the microwave and watch what happens. Be ready with more than 1 piece because you will want to see it again! So cool!
This is what happens to the ivory soap. It actually looks like it would be soft like shaving cream but it’s not, it’s harder than you’d expect. You can then take this soap mountain into the bathtub. Will it sink or float?
Clean Mud Sensory Tub
That week at Marvelously Made – The School for Young Children they also made “clean mud” with the microwaved soap (above) and toilet paper. Just add water and mix with your hands to make a clean mud sensory tub.
