Soap Crayons Materials:
1 c soap flakes
1/4 c hot water
ice cube tray
Fragrant oil (optional) estimate about 1/2 teaspoon
Heat the water in microwave for 2 minutes. Drop the water into the flakes a tsp.
at a time, stirring constantly. It will be thick and hard to stir. Spoon some of
the soap into different bowls and color each with the food coloring until it has
the consistency of thick paste. Press spoonfuls into the molds and nuke on low
for 15 minutes to dry the crayons out. Let them dry at room temperature for
several days and give it another day after un-molding.

1/4 Cup warm water 4-6 drops food coloring

mixture begins to stiffen. 2.) Remove mix from bowl & knead until it is the
conistency of a very thick dough. 3.) Spoon crayon mix into plastic cookie
cutters. 4.) Place cookie cutters in freezer for 10 minutes. 5.) Pop crayons out
& allow to dry overnight or until hard. You can also use plastic ice cube
trays for a mold. Can be used as a bath soap.

You can play with these bubbles in the tub to have alot of fun! You can make bubble blowers out of ordinary household objects like plastic soda rings, twisty ties, soda bottles cut in half and almost anything your imagination can create. This is a great recycling project for kids and will keep them busy for hours. If you have any bubbles left over, don't waste them...your bubble mixture will make a great window washing mixture, grab a squeegee and go! It will only take a few minutes and your glass will look great!
