Making soaps with kids is a fun craft; you can do for a school activity, or simply to spend a few hours together, crafting. The materials are easy to find and easy to use. Your kids can explore their creative side, and come up with all sorts of interesting soaps, without having a lot of crafting experience. There is no reason that soap making, even with kids, has to be boring. While basic soaps are fun, (and a good place to start), here are some ideas for easy soaps, that kids can make, that have a unique creative touch.
Cucumber and Aloe Loofah Soap-
This delightful and very green soap, is fun to use, but also makes a great gift. Kids and adults alike will love its luxurious scent and color!
What you will need:
- 3 oz Opaque soap flakes
- 1 Loofah (sliced)
- 1 Tablespoon of Aloe Vera gel
- 15 Drops of cucumber essential oil
- Liquid food color (green)
Instructions for the project:
Using a microwave friendly bowl, pour the soap flakes, sliced loofah, Aloe Vera gel, green color and cucumber oil, into it and mix them well. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and place it in the microwave, for a minute. Remove the bowl from the microwave, stir any remnants of the un-dissolved soap pieces, and put it into a soap making mold of the desired shape! You need to make sure to let the soap dry, for 2 to 3 days, before taking it out of the mold!
