Sand Toy Soaps and Net Bag Gift Kit
By Twila Lenoir
If you want to give this as a gift, make two or three soaps to stuff in the netting that held your sand toys, then pop in a wash cloth and a net bath scrubby.
I made a crab-shaped soap too, but before I could take a picture, my three-year-old found it and took it to the sink. Smile!
Clear block or bar of glycerin soap
Sand toys (you can usually find these at the Dollar Store)
Decorative buttons (optional)
Chop the glycerin soap into pieces and place them in a paper cup. Microwave for 30 second intervals until melted.
Place the sand toy upside down on a towel so that it doesn’t move around. Pour in the soap to the half way point. Let it the soap set a little bit, then if you are using one, place a decorative button, upside down, in the center of the soap. I used a dragon fly. Let the soap set up a little more and then finish pouring soap right to the top of the mold. Now for the hard part – you have to let the soap fully harden, and then just pop it out.
Place a face cloth, the soaps and a net scrubby inside the netting bag and tie off with some ribbon. Or just place it in the bathroom. Enjoy!
