I found a fun clover soap mold recently and decided it was perfect to make a shamrock shake St. Patricks Day soap in. It is a thick silicone mold and the soap is tinted with small pieces of broken green crayons stolen from my daughter’s stash. Children’s crayons are non-toxic and dissolve in melt and pour soap perfectly. It is an easy soap craft and can even be used the same day you make it. No lye needed.
St. Patricks Day Soap Craft
I made a few different versions of this St. Patricks day soap and these two were my favorites. They are fun to make and the project is easy enough for any child who is old enough to safely use a microwave to complete.
The deep green one was made with clear glycerine soap and a green crayon chunk.
The creamy shamrock shake green soap was made with goat’s milk soap base and a mix of regular and grass green crayon bits.Print
