How To Make Homemade Bath Soap Crayons For Kids

You can make your own bathtub soap crayons for the little ones quickly and easily by following the recipe below and making them yourself which is so much cheaper than buying them in a speciality bath store.

We use the following recipe all of the time and our grandkids, nieces and nephews just love it when I hand them a pile of homemade bath soap crayons for them to enjoy while getting a bath.

You will Need:

1 cup grated Ivory Soap
1/4 cup warm water

How to: Mix water, soap & food coloring together in med. size bowl. Stir the crayon mixture until it begins to stiffen. Remove the mixture from the bowl and knead until it is the consistency of a very thick dough.

Place the plastic cookie cutters in your freezer for 10 mins or in your refrigerator for 30 mins. When firm, Pop the bath crayons out of the cookie cutters (or other molds) and allow them to air dry overnight or until hard.
