Ages preschooler

Even preschoolers can shape these soap snowballs. Part of the fun is hiding a small plastic toy in each ball as a prize for good bathers. I chose penguins because they look so at home in the snow.

What you'll need

  • Food processor or cheese grater
  • 4 (4.5-ounce) bars of Ivory soap
  • 8 tiny plastic toys

How to make it

  1. Use a food processor fitted with the grater attachment to shred the four bars of soap. (You can also grate the bars by hand with a cheese grater.) Pour the soap pieces into a large bowl.

  2. With your hands, mix in about a half cup of lukewarm water, a little bit at a time, until the mixture is squishy and claylike.

  3. For each snowball, scoop up a heaping handful of soap and mold it into a ball. Poke a deep hole in the center with your finger, insert a toy, and refill the hole. Lay the finished snowballs on a cookie sheet and let them dry thoroughly. Makes 8.
