Looking For A Way To Get The Kids To Remember To Wash Their Hands? Try This! It’s So Clever!
It’s so simple! I’ve never tried to make my own soap before, but this looks incredibly simple. You’ll need a base for the soap which you can find at most craft stores, a few molds, color for the soap (food coloring might stain little hands!) and glitter. She used cosmetic glitter in this tutorial because it is very fine and is made for use around the delicate skin of the eyes, so it will be safe for use by kids and might even stick to their fingers later so that they can show their friends!
She also mixed the colors together by layering the different shades on top of each other. I wanted to see her try and pour them in and swirl them around with a toothpick to see what would happen, but it may be that the different colors harden too quickly to be able to do this. For extra bits of fun, try making smaller molds of white or yellow dots and stars to press into the larger molds while they’re still cooling, or small plastic glow animals that can be found only after washing your hands!
The key to getting your kids to do things is to make it fun and exciting. Once the excitement wears off, it can help them to form a habit that will hopefully last into adult hood. Wash those hands, kiddos!
