Creative Soap Crafts

Creative Soap Crafts

Soap is a craft that is fun and easy to make. It's a great project to do where you can make the soaps as gifts for Mother's day or as a birthday gift ect. Please ask an adult to supervise so as to ensure that there are no accidents and less mess at the end of the day!

Simply follow the instructions below and you'll be on your way to one of your first bars of soap... where you choose all the soap colors and shapes.

You will need the following materials:
- One bar of color free soap
- Essential oils of your choice
- Food coloring of your choice
- Almond Oil
- Vitamin E Oil (optional)
- Oats

1. Shred soap in a blender or food processor.
2. Boil a pot of water and put a glass bowl over the pot.
3. Put some almond oil into the bowl.
4. Place the soap into the bowl.
5. Take the water from the pot and pour it into the bowl until the soap changes into paste.
6. Add oils, color, and Vitamin E as you prefer.
7. Let your soap cool in the molds of your choice. (Your mold could be ice cube trays, cookie cutters, or anything else that you might come up with.)
8. Allow the soap to air out on wax paper for a day or two.

Try out different colors and shapes for your soap and have fun with your experiment. Best of Luck!
