  • Microwave-safe bowl/plate
  • Bar of soap
  • Microwave
  • Watercolor
  • Parchment paper or something else to catch drips during play

Step 1: Place a bar of soap on a microwave-safe dish and microwave for a couple minutes.

This is what it looked like after about one and a half minutes, so I put it back in for another 30sec-1min.

This is after about 2 minutes

It's looking more like a cloud now!

Step 2: Let cool and then place this in front of your amazed children. Give them water colors or watered down tempera and let them turn their cloud into a rainbow! A paintbrush is optional. At this point, the activity turns from art project to hands on activity. Encourage them to rub it between their hands, break it apart, hammer it with a paintbrush, and anything else they can think of!
