Dating At Home: Soap Carving/Sculptures



This week's "dating at home" idea is cheap and clean-
SOAP CARVING
(or sculpting)!

Grab a couple bars of Ivory soap and carve (or sculpt) away!

You can use any kind of bar soap but Ivory soap is extremely easy to carve than other bar soaps. AND, there's a surprise ending if you decide NOT to keep your masterpieces on display in your bathroom or use them.


Make your own rules like setting a time limit, or setting out only a few of tools that are allowed to create your carving or sculpture (i.e. wooden skewers, pumpkin carving set, etc.)

Surprise ending: If you use Ivory bar soap and don't plan on keeping your creations, you can blow up your soap into a cloud!
Here's a sneak peak:


To blow up your soap, put your soap on a microwave-safe plate and stick it in the microwave for 2 minutes. Don't open the microwave while it puffs. When the 2 minutes are up, be careful when removing the plate. The plate AND soap will be really hot! Let it cool before touching it.

*This is also a fun activity to do with your kids!
