Summer Bucket List: Make an Ivory Soap Cloud



This is actually a science experiment, but it is so much fun, you can just do it as a summer fun activity. It is so easy to do, too. All you have to do is place a bar of Ivory soap in the center of a plate and put it into a microwave. Cook the bar for 2 minutes on high in the microwave.  When your soap cloud is finished, let it cool before letting the kids touch it.


If you want to sneak in some science, you could do a comparison with Ivory soap and another brand of soap, putting them in water to see if they sink or float. Ivory soap floats because it has air pumped into it when it is made.
If you want to know the science behind it, you can go to

  1. I've heard of people doing this as their first step to homemade clothing soap.
