Have you ever made your own soap? A few years ago I tried out soap making for the first time and had some very interesting experiences.
I did a lot of experimenting using bars of soap and made some really great things. I also blew up the microwave and had a bowl which stunk of soap forever more.

  1. Aww! These are so cute! What a fab idea.
    I have made soap in the past & it worked out well….I didn’t think of putting anything like mermaids into it though. I think we might have to give this a try x

  2. Cute, this turned out great and so much fun to make I’m sure! My daughter is really into this kind of stuff at the moment. We attempted slime this morning and failed miserably, lol!
