Soap Crayons

This is a great rainy day (or any day) activity!

These are fun to write with in the tub or to use when washing little hands. Also makes a wonderful handmade gift from the kids to a relative.

1 1/2 cup pure soap powder (such as Ivory Snow - or finely grate Ivory soap)
Food coloring
1/2 cup water
Small containers (such as ice cube trays or plastic film containers)

Tip: Be sure your container's opening does not narrow, as in that of a baby food jar, or your soap will have to be broken to be removed.

Mix water and soap powder together.
Add enough food coloring to get the color you want.
Pour the colored soap into small containers or mold it into crayon shapes and let harden before using.

Tip: For multiple colors, divide the mixture into smaller containers before adding food coloring.
