|Soap balls from Beautiful Sun Montessori|
The minute I saw these soap balls over at the wonderful Beautiful Sun Montessori I knew we were onto a winner. Simple to make, useful and a wonderful creative and sensory experience for the children to boot.
To make your soap balls you will need:
- 1 bar of soap per child (pretty much any kind, but the soft milky ones do work best)
- 5 Tbsp water
- 1/3 Cup of Oatmeal
- 1 tsp chopped rosemary or other hardy herbs
- 3 drops of essential oils
- 1-2 drops food coloring
First the children grated the bars of soap. This activity was so popular that they grated their way through 20 (yes 20) bars of soap in one sitting.
Our 'mushers' got lost in the whole gooey fragrant sensory experience.
