Add Plastic Toys to Homemade Soap

Here is a tip to help encourage children to love washing their hands and bathing with lots of soap without a huge hassle. When making your own soap, a very cheap thing to do is to buy a bag of small plastic toys from a dollar store; spiders, lizards, bugs, airplanes, baby dolls, etc.


When soap making, place a toy in the center of each bar of soap. Use light colored (see through) soap. These will cost about 5 cents each. The children wash and wash, trying to get to the toy. Works every time, LOL.

CAREFUL. Small toys that would fit in a homemade bar of soap could choke your child. Also: dollar store toys aren't always safe toys, especially plastic ones. Please make sure the toys are safe and big enough not to be swallowed or stick in the throat.

It's a good idea but not safe for children of certain ages :-( Might sound weird but, depending on the age of the child, maybe place a dollar bill as incentive in the soap instead.

That is such a cute idea, I like it! You could even put a little waterproof doll in there.


I love the possibilities. Rings or anything would be cool!

I love your idea. These kinds of soaps were available in stores when I was a young child. It was awesome to wash up with the anticipation of getting to the toy eventually.
