Soapy ice play

this play time activity is easy to recreate and can be done inside, outside and even in the bath. All you need is kid soap and a muffin/cupcake tray. The soap I used was all ready colored but if you get one that is not try mixing food coloring in to make it colorful. Pour soap into each section and freeze. Once frozen run under warm water quickly to make it easier to get the cubes out. Few of ours melt pretty quick but left behind a soap ice mixture that had a real neat feeling. After some play it was taken into bath time. The bottom left picture was how it looked after most melted. (we used a baking sheet to play with them on) You could also turn this into a color mixing lesson if wanted. 
Note~thinking if you add some water into the soap before freezing they would stick longer/melt slower.

Trash bin for bigger balls or large shoe rack works too Clothes hamper for pool toys & Mesh bag for sand toys Before we really even got some what organized we use to use crates but I found that with many kids going threw creates to find certain toys it quickly got messy so I really like the idea of having bins for certain toys. I also like that the bins are smaller then the crates we were using so that the smalle…
