DIY Bath Crayons

These homemade Bath Crayons are simple to make and adds more fun to bath time.. Its much cheaper than the store bought ones and works really well. Older kids can make it themselves. 

What you need

  • Ivory bar soap
  • Warm water
  • Food color
  • Silicone mold or ice cube tray (optional)

How to

  • Grate the ivory bar soap. I just used one bar soap. You could use as many depending on how many crayons you need. Also, you could use any white bar soap.
  • Add 1 tbsp of warm water to the grated soap. Mix well to form a firm dough. If using different soap bar, add warm water in very small quantities and mix. Add more soap if needed. If you use more water, it takes a long time for the crayons to dry. 
  • Seperate the dough into portions, transfer them to small cups – depending on how many colors your going to make. (we had 5 portions)
  • Add desired food color to each portion and mix well. (abt 6-7 drops of food color for each portion)
  • Now you can press them into silicone molds or ice cube tray. I rolled them into cigars so it would be easy for my LOs to handle. 
  • Freeze them until they are solid – preferably overnight
  • Pop them out of the mold and its ready for use.
