- Microwave-safe bowl/plate
- Bar of soap
- 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!
