This is such a fun playtime!  Kids get to tear up toilet paper, which they love to do for some reason.  They get to grate soap, add water, and create their very own amazing mud that will leave them fresh and clean.  What's not to love, right?  Are you ready to make your own?

We placed our soap bars in the freezer overnight so that they would be icy-cold.
You can grate the soap while they rip the paper if you are concerned about your children using a grater. We had a quick talk about safety before they began grating. 

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!

Once the soap is grated have kids tear the roll of toilet paper into shreds and add it to the bin.

My girls loved 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.

Now, slowly add cold water and mix.

Add a bit more water and mix a little more. Keep adding water and mixing 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 in the icy-cold mud.

Rosie loved making ghosts in the mud using shapes we cut from black craft foam.

The girls played and played and played.  Then, Rosie asked if we could add more water.  

Sure, why not?
