I want to share the DIY Lemon and Oatmeal soap that the kids and I made together for Christmas gifts. I like to make useful gifts that have a purpose; soap is something I’ve always wanted to try so we gave it a go.
We made a “melt and pour” style of soap that’s super easy to make with children – just have kids do all the chopping and zesting and prep work, then switch to an adult for the melting and pouring. Once the soaps have cooled then kids can pop them out of the soap molds and wrap them up.
If you use lemon like we did, be sure to use the soap sooner rather than later to keep it fresh.
You guys, I took some really cute pictures of the kids using their kid-sized graters to grate the lemon and their kid-sized choppers to chop the soap. These photos were freaking adorable. Thing is, my phone was stolen on the CTA train and I lost all of those photos plus a bunch of other ones 🙁 Yeah. Big bummer.
Good news is that we hadn’t yet gifted the soaps so I was still able to take photos of the finished soap photos. And this project was so easy that I’m sure we’ll make it again soon so I’ll update this post with cute kid photos when we circle back to this easy DIY.
Tell me in the comments – what kind of melt-and-pour soap would you like to make?
