Fancy Soap Sculptures

Materials List

glycerin soap


  1. Cut a bar of soap into pieces about 2 inches or 5 cm.   
  2. Put the soap in a microwave safe bowl.  Microwave on high for 10-15 seconds.  The soap should turn into a liquid.
  3. Pour the liquid soap into the mold.  Let cool for about half a minute (30 seconds) and remove the soap from the mold.


  • If you aren't sure what soap to buy, look for the Neutrogena bar soap.
  • Make sure you have an adult help with this project.
  • Candy or playdough molds work great for making fancy bath soaps.  Just be sure to label them so they won't be used to make candy again!
