Bath Pals Soap for Kids

  • Difficulty: Moderate
  • Print

Ingredients & Supplies:

  • Soap molds (plastic cups also work)
  • Cooking spray to coat molds
  • Pure solid glycerin soap (this can be found in cubes at craft stores)
  • Essential oils of choice
  • Colored soap dyes
  • Small plastic toys

Instructions:

  1. Coat the insides of your soap molds or cups with cooking spray.
  2. Melt soap.The size of your molds will determine how much soap you’ll need. Place cubes of soap in a measuring cup, and microwave on high for 30 seconds. If some solid soap still remains, microwave in 10-second intervals until soap is thoroughly melted. Make sure to supervise if your kids are doing this—the soap gets hot!
  3. Add in a few drops of soap dye to reach your desired color, and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add several drops of your desired essential oil. (Some great kid-friendly oils include lavender, orange, Roman chamomile, lemon, and peppermint.)
  5. Carefully fill mold about 1/3 of the way full with the hot soap. Let it cool for about 20 minutes, and then place the small plastic toy on top of the hardened soap.
  6. Repeat steps 2–4 to melt and color the remaining soap. Pour a second layer of soap into the mold over the plastic toy.
  7. Let cool and harden for at least 2 hours. Once cool, turn the mold upside down and pop the soap out.
