    DIY Soap For Kids By Today's Creative Blog

    Posted by  ·  January 4, 2014

    I’m thrilled to be hanging out with Skip To My Lou again. I’m Kim from Today’s Creative Blog, where I share Home Decor, Recipes, Crafts and more!

    I only do easy crafts! None of that hard stuff for me. This DIY Soap for Kids may look hard to you if you’ve never done it before, but I promise, it’s super easy. Easy crafts with that WOW factor are what it’s all about!

    By following this easy tutorial, you could have new soap for the kids by bath time. The kids will never be so clean because this kids soap really encourages kids to scrub.

    I used to make soap all the time and when I say soap, I mean the easy melt in the microwave glycerin soap. There are so many options with this craft that is doesn’t have to be kid themed, but today it is.

    How to Make Soap for Kids

    First, gather your supplies. I found my basic supplies at my local craft store.

    • soap mold
    • brick of glycerin soap
    • plastic animals or any small toy
    • food coloring (optional)
    • scented essential oils (optional)
    • vegetable oil (to LIGHTLY grease the mold)

    Cut your brick of soap into small pieces and melt in the microwave. Yes, you could also do it in a double boiler if you’d like.

    Keep an eye on it and check often. I would check it in the microwave about every 30 seconds, give it stir and repeat until it’s all melted. Stir gently…….the more vigorous, the more bubbles, and you don’t want bubbles because he makes your soap cloudy. But…..it’s for the kids and I really doubt they care if they have cloudy soap because all they’ll be doing is scrubbing away trying to get the toy.

    Making soap for kids | TodaysCreativeBlog.netWhile it’s in the microwave, lightly grease your mold. LIGHTLY is the key word, unless you like greasy soap.

    Once it’s melted, this is when you want to add your dye or scents. I used food coloring, only a drop……so it’s not going to stain anything. I’m sure they have special dyes if you’re concerned. I find my scents from Whole Foods, but I usually don’t include scents in children’s soaps. Again, they really could care less.

    Making soap for kids | TodaysCreativeBlog.netFill the molds half way with melted soap, then place your animal (Keep in mind the bottom will be the top of the soap…..I should have totally turned the kitty the other direction), then pour the rest of soap into the mold, filling it to the top. (keep toy size in mind, you don’t want to create a choking hazard)Making soap for kids | TodaysCreativeBlog.net

    That’s it! Now you have to wait a couple of hours. Too many bubbles, but I plan on telling kids it’s either the animal has gas or it’s air bubbles like scuba diving. It’s all in how you present it, right?Making soap for kids | TodaysCreativeBlog.net

    Once it’s cooled completely, just flip it over and push them out.

    I’ve adding some cute printable soap wraps you can find on Today’s Creative Blog. These will make a great gift! Just wrap in plastic wrap and deliver!

      It’s a very nice soap for kids. This is help them to keep away of many health problems. If you are not kids than you may go to defense antibacterial soap. It’s really save your body from many health problems like ringworm and jock itch.

      Wow…this is really cool and creative idea to place animals in soap. I use my own hand made antibacterial soap but I had never thought like this. Kim…your idea is impeccable and I will definitely try to make this for my loving daughter.
