Paint the Clouds Ivory Soap Activity
Paint the Clouds with this fun activity that is actually 3 fun activities all in one! This activity first begins as a fun science experiment that is fun to watch, then becomes art, and lastly endless messy sensory play that will bring endless smiles to children of all ages.
Watch in amazement at what happens when you put a bar of Ivory Soap in the microwave oven. This activity utilizes a fun at home experiment to create and only requires a couple of materials. The soap gets very hot, so adult supervision is recommended for this activity.
Ivory soap is manufactured using a whipping process that infuses air bubbles into the bar of soap. When the bar of soap is heated, these tiny air bubbles which contain water molecules, expand rapidly and cause the bar of soap to move and grow into a fluffy cloud like structure. When it cools, however, it hardens on the outside leaving a fluffy spongy texture inside. This makes a beautiful fun palette for kids to play with.
