Toddler Tuesday-Soap Mud


Finally I am organized enough to have a Toddler Tuesday post today instead of a whine about how I suck post.  🙂  Yay!

I mentioned earlier that I had a snow day last week because I am too chicken to drive in snow.  I hopped on Pinterest and looked for an activity for Baby Belle.  I have a ton of stuff pinned but I had very few on hand ingredients.  No worries…I did have some toilet paper and I also had an old Bath and Body Works bar of soap that I have had since college…TADA!  Soap Mud!  I had pinned a pretty cool recipe that just uses those two ingredients on The Imagination Tree blog.

First I got Baby Belle and my sister busy tearing up toilet paper into teeny tiny bits.


While they did that I grated up a bar of stinky soap.  Then I mixed the soap shavings with the toilet paper.

Have a great day y’all!
