Snowball Soap Surprise

We had another SNOW DAY here last Friday! 
I started preparing the night before - since they seem to close schools with the lightest flurry.
I found some cool WINTER crafts to try out!
{more posts to come}

Snowball Soap Surprise
is from Family Fun and you can find it here

All you need is a bar of soap, a grater, some warm water, and a little toy!
{I only let the kids grate when the bar was still large as this could be an accident waiting to happen}

Soap shavings for the snowball.

Here is the Squinkie 'surprise' that Jillian put inside her snowball.

The fun part was molding the snowballs! 
We gathered up the soap shavings, added a little bit of warm water, and started molding the snowballs around the small toy - adding more shavings and more water as needed.  Then we let them dry on some parchment paper.

I wasn't sure how well these little cuties would hold up, but they have been great!  They are perfect for little hands to hold and make handwashing fun.
