In an effort to not burden any of her classmates with another pencil or piece of candy, last weekend Alison and I made Valentine's Soaps. Very easy and kindergarten-helper-friendly -- you use the microwave.
Let me be clear, you're not actually making soap per se, more like reforming soap. :) Here's the deets:
What you need:
Bar of clear glycerin melt & pour soap
Mold (we used a Wilton lollipop cookie sheet)
What you do:
Melt the soap in the microwave per packaging instructions.
Mix in glitter, fragrance and food color.
Pour in mold, let cool for 20-30 minutes.
