Kids love bath time. I literally have to give mine time limits in the bathtub and shower! They love playing with their toys, playing in bubbles and fun soaps!
My son is currently into all things dinosaur so I decided to make dinosaur soap.
This recipe is super easy to make, so easy in fact that he helped me make them! We’re going to be using a simple melt & pour method where the products can be bought at basically any craft store.
First things first, here is a list of what you’ll need:
Soap colorant (optional)
Essential oil for fragrance (optional)
Edible Stars (optional)
Knife for cutting
Popsicle stick(or other stirring device)
First you’ll want to put a dinosaur in the bottom of each of the silicone mold wells.
Next cut 1 inch cubes of clear soap base (I cut 1 inch all the way across then cut into small cubes.)
Microwave for 30 seconds, stir and microwave again if needed. You want to melt it enough to get the chunks out, but not over heat it or it will take longer to set up.
Once melted, choose your colorant. We used blue and green. You’ll only want to add a few drops so the soap will still be see through, otherwise you won’t be able to see the dinosaur. Mix well.
Now slowly pour on top of the dinosaurs. They might float up, but that is okay! Use a popsicle stick to position them the way you want them, remember you are looking at it upside down. Add stars if you’d like! Now let that layer set.
Next chop up 1 inch cubes of white Shea butter soap. Melt in the microwave, and add your fragrance if you’d like. You can also add some colorant to this layer as well.
Spray the first layer with rubbing alcohol now that it is starting to set. This will bind the two layers together.
Pour onto first layer.
Now all you have to do it wait!
Once they are completely set up, pop them out and enjoy!
Wrap any bars that aren’t going to be immediately used in saran wrap !!
My son and daughter both we were so excited about these! And it’s a fun and quick craft they can help with! Perfect for rainy or sick days!
