Since we live in Phoenix, we have to make our own snow fun (see what we’ve done in the past here and here). So you can imagine our excitement when we learned a trick for making a fluffy pile of snowflakes with nothing more than a bar of Ivory soap and a microwave.
The best part: it takes mere minutes to whip up your own flurries.
All it takes is a microwave and a bar of Ivory brand soap (only Ivory will work). Place the unwrapped bar on a large, microwave-safe dish. Heat for two to three minutes and be sure to let your little ones watch as the soap expands into a snowy cloud. Remove it from the microwave and let it cool to the touch before playing with it outside or in the bathtub!
