Make an adorable embedded toy soap. With this kit you will make a loaf soap that can be cut into 8 or 10 bars. You could use any of our toys or erasers, but we think the piggies have such great personality.
This kit contains:
This kit is a little different than our other kits in that you can remove or get extra of each item in your shopping cart (and the price will adjust accordingly) before you check out. So you can just get what you need. Also please note, that there are no printed instructions included with this kit. Learn how to make this soap from the Soap Queen TV video below.
I bought this project to do with my 5 year old (who loves the Soap Queen videos) and a 6 year old friend. It was very do-able with the two girls. They chose their colors, and loved spritzing (everything in sight) the layers and piggies with the alcohol. The scents are nice and kid-friendly. The one drawback is that the mold in the kit is different from the one in the recipe/video, and it must be a bit wider. 16 oz of clear didn't cover the piggies--I needed another 8 oz. Since I had read the other review, and I knew we would do more projects anyway, I had bought more clear, and we had it on hand.
Also, the clear M&P is somewhat yellow and murky, not nearly as crystal clear as in the video.
Overall, though, lots of fun, and cute soap!
She makes it look so easy! I'm new to soap making to start, I've made probably 5 batches from scratch, and several batches from M&P. When cooling, the clear M&P would clump. I find using a taller rather than wider container worked, (after the fact). The clear didn't cover the pigs, so I tried to smash them farther into the mold. The next color was a little too hot and melted into the clear. You learn from trial and error. Other than that (me), I love the smell, they are very cute and the colors are soft. I'd make another batch, but would use taller containers when mixing, add a little more color to the pink and green and relax.
