Homemade soap in fun shapes

We have been busy at our house planning my youngest son's 1st bday party.  I have been looking for thank you gifts to give out instead of the good old candied goody bags.  When I saw this idea of homemade soap I thought it was perfect.  This is just one of the things me and my son have been working on.


homemade soap for kids





What you need:

*Melt and pour type soap(I ordered goats milk and oatmeal 1 lb blocks from http://bulkapothecary.com)  I hear craft stores carry glycerin soap but did not look.  It is so much easier for me to shop online, than to go to the store with my boys;-)

*Scents or essential oils(I ordered apple and blueberry scents from http://symphonyscents.com)

*soap molds(or you can use candy molds, ice cube trays or other plastic items you may have-I used a plastic baby food container for one bar because I still had soap to pour after my molds were full)

*Pyrex measuring cup(or microwave safe bowl)

*soap color(I ordered mine from http://bulkapothecary.com)  I have seen food coloring used but did not try this )



What to do:

I cut  our block of soap in two, then cut the 1/2 into smaller pc.  We put this into the measuring cup and microwaved about 1 1/2mins.  I checked it in between this time.  When melted take it out and stir, this is where you add your color block(or food coloring?).  I used 1/2 of one of the 6 blocks in the case of color.  We mixed it well until the color dissolved.  We then added 1/4 tsp of the fragrance oil and mixed well.  Now it is time to pour the soap into the molds.  Let them sit several hours to harden.  Then pop them out of the molds.  Now you can go wash your hands or take a bath and enjoy these great soaps!  My oldest just loves these.  I have a feeling we will make many more bars of soap.




Goat milks Apple soap!  I really like this one.


Oatmeal blueberry soap, My oldest really likes this one.

I think the colors may have been brighter had we used clear glycerin soap.  Look forward to trying that next.
