Scrub A Dub Dub

Try making these fun little soaps. Your little kiddies will love them.

You will need:
clear glycerin soap
soap fragrance
soap dye (I think you could get away with using a drop or 2 of food coloring)
soap glitter
little toys, rings, bouncy balls, etc.
silicone muffin pans
*You can get all the soap stuff at craft stores and the dye, glitter and fragrance are totally optional.

Melt the soap in the microwave according to the package directions (usually in 30-60 second intervals). Once it is melted, add the dye, fragrance and glitter to your preference.
Place a toy in each muffin cup. Frogs or marine animals are really cute, especially when they look like they are jumping out of the soap.
Pour enough of the melted soap over each toy to fill up the cup and cover the toy, unless you want to leave some uncovered.
It hardens pretty fast; easily within an hour.

These make great stocking stuffers or party favors. My kids have given heart-shaped ones to their friends for Valentines Day in a clear plastic bag tied up with a ribbon.
