I've seen soap pockets around on the web, but didn't consider them seriously until I reread the idea today in The Preschooler's Busy Book by Trish Kuffner. It was a slow day here as we're recuperating from illness and this struck me as an easy spur-of-the-moment project. I took an old washcloth and cut it in half. (The half piece is just the right width for a bar of soap and long enough to wrap around about a time and a half, creating an opening in the back to insert a new bar of soap, much like a pillow-cover). I stitched one end closed, added silly faces, then stitched the other end closed. We call them our "soap buddies." Now if I could just get around to putting the kids in the tub with them.
