DIY Bath Crayons
For some time now, I have been wanting to buy my daughter some bath crayons. Then, through Pinterest, I found a tutorial by SOS Mom that is super easy to follow. However, there are a few things I learned along the way.
We used neon food coloring and star molds from Michael's and we did the glycerin soap method. Also, instead of melting the soap in the microwave, we melted it in a double boiler. In the end, we had 24 stars of each of the four colors, with the exception of the red stars, which came to only 21. I think the reason there were less red stars is because we let that batch stay on the stove longer. Consequently, the red shows up the best in the tub. I'm not sure if this is a direct correlation, or if we happened to put more food coloring in this batch (we didn't measure) either way, when I make these again I think I will be more generous with the food coloring and the amount of time I let the soap sit on the stove.
