How To Make Soap For Kids
DIY Soap For Kids Supplies Needed:
- small rubber bath toys
- 2-3 bars of pure glycerin soap
- container to pour your melted soap into (I used silicone muffin molds)
Directions On How To Make Soap For Kids:
Gather your supplies and head to your kitchen. Unwrap a bar of your pure glycerin soap and place in a microwave safe glass bowl or measuring cup.
*You can find pure glycerin soap at some grocery stores or HERE.
Microwave your glycerin soap for 20 seconds at a time stirring after each 20 seconds. It took my bar of soap about 60 seconds to melt completely. Be careful when removing your glass container from the microwave because it will be hot. Give one more quick stir and now your are ready to pour your melted glycerin soap into your containers. One bar of melted soap filled up 3 small silicone muffin molds.
Once you have poured your melted soap into your mold, carefully place your small rubber bath toy into the soap. Push down a little to make sure your bath toy is down in the soap. It’s great if your bath toy is thin enough to touch the bottom of your mold that way the toy will stay in the soap after multiple uses. If your toy is just sitting on the surface, it will probably come loose after your child’s first bath.
Let your soap dry for about an hour (for quicker drying time, place in freezer for around 30 minutes). Once your soap is set, gently pull it out of your mold and it’s ready to use! *Feel free to add a scent to your soap after melting. We like to add Lavender or Orange Essential Oil!
