    microwave Ivory soap (must be Ivory) for 1-2 minutes on parchment paper and it turns into this soap cloud. Cool. Then you can smash it up in a bowl and add food coloring and shape it into little soaps with cookie cutters. Cute idea!

    This is what happens when you microwave a bar of Ivory soap! Then you can tear it up, color it, and mold it into shapes! It's not wet and messy, either! This is awesome! Cool science experiment for kids.

Ivory soap - You may recall that Ivory soap floats in water. The reason for that is that unlike other soap, it has a a bunch of air whipped into it. This is important because when you microwave it, all those tiny air bubbles expand and make your soap look like this
