DIY Popsicle Soap


Looking for a way to get the kids to wash their hands EVEN MORE? Then these popsicle soap will do the trick!


While going through my computer of pictures I took last summer, I came up on these popsicle soap that Madison and I did while bored one day. It had been a hot couple of weeks and with weather like that, I tend to stay indoors. With there not being a beach near by and the waterpark over an hour away, I much prefer to stay inside with the A/C on and relax in what is considered my oasis. However, I have a 4yr old by the name of Madison who believes that if you're at home, you should be doing something. I don't blame her because I've instilled in her that it's not ok to be lazy, no matter how much I like just lazing about. With a craft center that just keeps getting bigger and bigger, thanks to Michaels and their amazing deals, there is always something for us to do. While at Michaels, I happened to pick up some soap making craft supplies. I had no idea what I was going to do with them since I'd never made soap before, however my first soap project just happened to be this one that I'm sharing with you today, our popsicle soap.

DIY Popsicle Soap 

Supplies Needed:

Popsicle Mold (I got mine at IKEA)
Glycerin Soap
Soap Coloring which is different from food coloring
Essential Oil Fragrance
Microwavable Bowl or Measuring Cup
Rubbing Alcohol in Spray Bottle

Directions:

Step 1

Cut as much of the glycerin soap that you'll need into small chunks and place them in your microwavable bowl or measuring cup. Place in the microwave for about 30 seconds until they melt.

Step 2

Add in your color and your fragrance and pour into your popsicle mold to your desired height. Spray your alcohol to get rid of the bubbles before it sets. Let it cool before adding in your second color.

Step 3

Once your first color has cooled, place a popiscle stick in the middle holding it in place with either tape or a clothes pin. Repeat Step 2 until you get the desired number of colors that you want. We went with 4 colors.

Step 4

Place in your refrigerator and let it cool overnight

Step 5

This is the most difficult step. If you used a silicone mold it should come apart easily. If you didn't and used a plastic mold, you're going to have to continually squeeze it until you get your popsicle completely out of the mold.


If you have kids who hate washing their hands, they'll finally start making up reasons to start doing so. Who wouldn't want to wash their hands with a popsicle? Remember this isn't edible but it's a whole lot of fun. You can also use other molds and make 1 color molds in any desired shapes. Let your imagination go wild. Soaps are so easy to make once you have the supplies, that you'll wonder why you've never done them before. By the way, can you tell I'm ready for the summer and popsicles already? Who's with me?

    Nice tip on where you got the popsicle molds. We have a family IKEA trip coming up!

  34. Pretty cool DIY!! This is definitely something I would do with my 11 year old nephew because he would understand not to eat it. Now my younger nephew will most definitely will try to eat it lol...

  35. It would be so much fun to do this with the kids! I think it's really creative that you decided to do it in popsicle form, it's a good giveaway during parties as well as gifts for friends, classmates, or teachers! So long as you label the soap because it looks so good, it can pass off as an actual popsicle stick! I love that you can do different colors as well.

  36. This is such a good idea! I never thought about making my own soap before but it would be a good gift to give x

    ReplyDelete
