Grating the soap...I took a quick picture...he wasn't interested in this part.
Pouring the grated soap in.
Pouring the water...he poured too.
Fun playing in the White Mud!
We are now reading I Know a Rhino. Our first lesson from The Itty-Bitty Bookworm was to make White Mud. At first Caden wasn't interested...not even interested in grating the soap. He was more interested in pouring the water into the mixture. Once we got to that part in the directions he was hooked.
Caden loved for me to build the white mud up into a pile and being the boy he is he wanted to knock it down. At first he was kind of weirded out by the texture, but after I showed him all the things he could do with it, he enjoyed himself. The recipe came from familyfun.go.com.
