I know that this idea has been floating around the blogosphere recently. So of course I had to try it out!
If you have not heard about it PLEASE do give it a try.
Simply slice of a piece of an Ivory soap bar (only works with Ivory and here is why). Place the soap on a ceramic plate and microwave for about 2min. Watch the soap expand it is super neat. The soap is a bit hot when you remove it but it does cool quickly.
Sorry no pictures we were having tooo much fun at the time. My niece and my mom came for a visit.
It is fun to predict with kids what will happen and to talk about textures. Our boys loved the results and had the best bath ever! TJ was fully describing the soap textures and what was happening in the bath that night. The only down side is the large about of soap residue left in the bath later.
