With the summer break getting nearer we are all starting to think about ways of keeping the kids occupied, and at the same time surreptitiously encouraging their creative skills and minds. There is nothing more rewarding to you the parent and also the child, as fun and creative crafts for kids.

One of the popular activities that always occupies kids for hours is the soap cloud.  It is amazing and scary what you can do with a bar of soap!



Place a piece of waxed paper, parchment, plastic wrap, or paper towel in your microwave.  Just don’t use foil, or we’ll have issues on our hands that are much bigger than  your next burrito tasting slightly like a fresh mountain spring.  This really doesn’t make a mess, so don’t be scared.
