*Warning* This project will make your home/Care Center smell like a bar of soap. Please use common sense when executing this project.
Place a piece of waxed paper in your microwave, then place the bar of soap on top of the parchment. This really doesn't make a mess, so don’t worry. We started out with one minute, which gave us a good result. Had we known better, we would have stopped at one minute, but we decided to spring for two minutes and got burnt soap. As an FYI; Burnt soap makes a lot of soap smelling smoke...
**As a bonus sensory exorcise, we let the children play with their expanded soap n the sink. They really enjoyed feeling the different textures of the soap, and watching it melt away.
