When teaching kids about hygiene, it’s imperative to make it fun and memorable. Guess what? This easy melt and pour monster soap does both of those with a punch! And because it uses the melt-and-pour soap base, it’s a quick craft.

Supplies for Googly-Eyed Soap
The raspberry seed oil is optional but consider adding it if you make your own soaps often. It’s loaded with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant goodness.
- 1/2 pound clear glycerin soap base (can make less)
- 1-2 drops raspberry seed oil (optional)
- 1-2 drops green apple scent (or your preference)
- green and purple soap colorant
- small bottle filled with rubbing alcohol
- googly eyes :)
- soap mold (got it here on Amazon)
How to Make Melt and Pour Monster Soap
This isn’t a hard craft at all and the kids can join in the fun making their own DIY soap just for kids!
- Cut the soap base into 1-inch cubes, putting 6 each into 2 containers. Melt one container’s soap base per the package instructions.
- Add 1-2 drops of raspberry oil, your preferred scent, and 1-2 drops of purple colorant to the bowl.
- Spray each cavity of the mold with a light misting of rubbing alcohol. Pour the soap base into the mold so that it just covers the bottom. Wait 2 minutes and press in the googly eyes upside down – you can use a chopstick or toothpick.
- Allow the soap to harden about 5 minutes and then add in more of the purple soap base. Spray the soap with a light misting of rubbing alcohol.
- Repeat for the green melt and pour monster soaps.
Allow the soaps to dry fully – at least 2 hours – before storing. You can wrap each one individually or store them together in an airtight container.
