Turn routine hand washing into an amusing game with these delightful little soap sculptures.

What You'll Need:

  • Soap flakes
  • Medium-size bowl
  • Spoon
  • Water
  • Food coloring
  • Scented oil (optional)
  • Waxed paper

How to Make Soap Sculptures:

Step 1: Pour some soap flakes in a medium-size bowl. Gradually stir in water until the mixture reaches a stiff, dough-like consistency. Add a few drops of food coloring to the mixture to make colored soaps. If you want to make scented soaps, add a few drops of scented oil to the batch.

Step 2: Cover your work surface with waxed paper. Place the dough on the waxed paper, and sculpt it into shapes such as shells, butterflies, or hearts. Let them dry overnight. Place them in a gift box, and give them to your friends or family members.
