I remember as a child making soap boats out of Ivory Soap…did you ever do this? I think this is such a fun activity for kids of all ages. I found the great blog, Fireflies & Mudpies which has so many great activities, and they had the soap boats!
This activity couldn’t be easier! Kids will love using plastic knives and spoons to carve Ivory Soap into floating boats! Wooden skewers, toothpicks, tape, and construction paper are the perfect materials for creating colorful sails! Invite your child to float their Soap Boat in a water-filled bin or the bathtub. Which shape floats best? What happens to the soap once it touches water? How long will the boat stay afloat?
