Bath Crayon Recipe.
Bath crayons are a lot of fun, and kids who don’t normally like to take a bath will often take a bath just to be able to play with the bath crayons in the tub.
The bath crayon recipe is so simple and easy, kids can even help in the process of making the bath crayons.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s make Bath Soap Crayons!
Bath Crayon supplies you will need:
- Clear glycerin soap base cut into cubes
- 3 or more soap color dyes (or food color dyes)
- Essential oils in your favorite smells (optional)
- Glass measuring cup for melting soap
- Spoons for mixing colors and fragrances
- Ice cube trays or round crayon molds
Separate the soap base cubes; one pile for each soap color dye.
Have the kids place the soap cube for the first color in a glass measuring cup and melt in microwave in short bursts.
Once melted, have the kids add soap color a drop at a time, mixing well after each drop until you get the color right.
Then, add a couple of drops of essential oils and mix well.
Next, have the kids carefully pour the color soap into ice cube trays.
If you see any air bubbles on the surface of the soap, spray it with rubbing alcohol.
Have the kids repeat the same bath soap making process with the rest of the colors.
After that, allow the bath soap to set until it is firm. This could take anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. When the bath soap is close to firm, place the bath soap in the freezer to speed up the hardening process.
When it’s time for the kids to take a bath, have them pop the bath crayons out of the trays.
Now, it’s time to get squeaky clean in the bath.
With bath crayons, kids who normally never want to take a bath, will now never want to get out of tub!
