Ghost Mud Play Recipe
- 3 bars of white soap
- 1 roll of toilet paper
Start by having kids grate up the bars of soap
You could also grate the soap while they rip the paper if you are concerned about your little ones using the grater. My girls are familiar with safe use, and we still always have a quick talk about safety before play.
We used a grater with four sides so that all of us could grate at the same time. I also had a hand held grater available. Each side had a different size grate, giving us a neat mixture of soap shavings
Playing in these by themselves was FUN!
Then it was time to rip and tear the roll of toilet paper
My girls had a blast with this part. We ripped up most of the roll but not all of it. Every roll is a different size, and ours was a big roll.
Next you want to slowly add water and mix
Add a bit more and mix a little more. Keep adding water until you have a gloriously soapy mash potato-type consistency also known as GHOST MUD
The texture of this stuff is seriously so FUN! All three of us had a blast mucking around
Rosie loved making ghosts
We played and played and played. Then, Rosie asked if we could add more water. Sure, why not?
A ghostly muck- so FUN!
We share a lot of play recipes, and I know I often say you should try them, but this one you really must try! It is one of our favorites for sure!
