Makin Soap

This was super easy and I am not sure why I waited so long to try to make soap. We bought a bag of glycerin at Hobby Lobby a couple of months ago, along with a mold, scent, and coloring, but never got around to it.

Here is Allison with our double boiler and the glycerin. I am so sorry I did not measure anything. I think we started out with 6 cubes and as it melted probably used another 6 or so.
Once the glycerin got melted we added the color ... we chose pink... and then a few drops of scent...we chose peppermint...then we mixed well and pour the soap in the mold.
You can not see it but we stuck a snowman ornament in each bar of soap for a holiday type theme. I did not take any after pictures...sorry ... but they popped out of the mold perfectly. Lots of fun for the 9 yr old .... a pretty easy craft over all.

My daughter Chelsea, my mom, and I tried this a couple pf years ago (she would ahve been about 9 too) along with our own gel candles. It was really easy and a lot of fun. We might have to pull out the molds and try it again soon.
