​Slippery Soap Scavenger Hunt

Soap is amazing stuff that not only makes bubbles, but also keeps you and your house clean! With your grownup, see how many you can you find together in your home.

After your soap scavenger hunt, choose three soaps and experiment with them.

Ask yourself: How do they move on a plate, wax paper, or in water? How do they mix together? Which make the best bubble solution to use at home?

Download our Slippery Soap Scavenger Hunt to guide you through your experiment.
