Today’s gift is two fold – it is a product review to know it’s a great gift as is OR you can make it and give as a gift. What is it? Tie Dye Soap!!
This is the kit we ordered from Michael’s via Giving Assistant (the shopping portal that gives you a discount and benefits charity). I was SOOOOO excited to see it arrive in the mail. I did decide to be nice and share with Kristina and the grandkids. It was a tough call but luckily they were coming down in just a couple days so I didn’t have to wait too long to try this kit out!
Step 1: read the instructions (yeah Men type people, this is something you really should do before you just start putting hammer to nails or drive around lost for three hours – just saying…..). Step 2: cut the soap base provided into pieces. The kit arrived with clear and white soap – halfish of a block fills the molds so you can make 4 batches! Add to a bowl and microwave – it doesn’t get REAL hot but still adult supervision here is preferred just in case!
Step 3: Add the melted soap to the mold and then add the tie dye colors!! woot fun time! Just an fyi, the color bottles are a bit tough to squeeze even for grown up fingers and one drop goes a long way!
Step 4: Stir the dye (if you wanna) and make some cool designs!! They even provide several of these sticks to twirl with!
Step 5: Set dyed soap somewhere for 30 – 45 minutes until cool, solid and you can pop the soap out of the molds.
Step 6: Find something to do for 30 – 45 minutes.
Finally it’s DONE! WOOHOO! Now pop out the soap and show it a bit of love!! Not sure why both kids opted to make funny faces for the camera today….
From the kit we ended up with all these soaps! We did pull out another soap mold to use in addition to the one provided. They all turned out great and the kids LOVED ‘making’ the soap and adding the dye. I few drops of dye ended up on the table but washed right up. The dishes too washed right up. Bonus, tons of dye left over so we can get some more soap base and make tons of tie dye soap for Christmas gifts!
I hope you had fun making soap with us today! Check out all the other Christmas in July Posts below!
Have a great week, Millie
