DIY Homemade Goldfish Soaps for Kids

DIY Homemade Goldfish Soaps for Kids

These cute homemade soaps have toy goldfish embedded inside to help make washing hands and even bath time more fun for kids. Plus they’re smaller guest sized soaps rather than full size soap bars making them perfect for small hands. Made from a crystal clear melt and pour soap base, these soaps are a snap to create so even the kids can get in on the crafting process. Due to the size of the toy embeds, however, these soaps are not recommended for any children under the age of three.

Now pour a  small amount of the now liquid soap into each of the six soap cavities just to coat the bottom. Place a goldfish into each cavity, then fill the remainder of all cavities completely with the remaining soap. Allow to harden and set up completely at room temperature. Do not freeze these or the soap base will become cloudy.

Once the soaps have hardened completely, carefully push out of the mold, then wrap tightly in food service film until use.

These cute homemade soaps are not only perfect for kids and grandkids, but also are loads of fun as birthday party favors!
