Making this Mickey-Shaped Soap is fun for kids big and small. The relaxing quality of lavender will soothe them to sleep after bath time — what more could a parent want?

The best part: there’s barely any cleanup. You’re making soap, after all!

What You’ll Need

  • 16 ounces glycerin melt and pour soap base
  • Microwave-safe glass measuring cup
  • Measuring spoons
  • 1/4 ounce lavender essential oil
  • Kitchen scale
  • Large wooden craft stick
  • Black food coloring
  • Mickey-shaped silicone mold
  • Rubbing alcohol in a small spray bottle
  • Red food coloring

How To Make It

  1. Using the kitchen scale, cut the 16-ounce soap base into small 1-inch cubes and place half in the measuring cup. Reserve the rest for the second layer.
  2. Use the scale to measure 1/8 (or .125) ounce of the lavender essential oil with the measuring spoon. Repeat, and set aside for the second layer.
  3. Melt the soap base by microwaving in 15-second intervals and stirring after each period with the wooden craft stick. Once the soap is melted, stir in the lavender essential oil and mix thoroughly.
  4. Add black food coloring, one drop at a time, and mix thoroughly until color is the shade you want. Pour into the silicone mold, filling 4 cavities half the way up. Spray with rubbing alcohol to remove air bubbles. Allow the soap to cool 30-45 minutes until it’s still warm but firm to the touch.
  5. Repeat steps 1-3 to make the red soap layer, adding in red food coloring.
  6. Spray the top of the soap liberally with the rubbing alcohol to adhere the layers together. Then pour the red layer of soap, filling the 4 cavities of the silicone mold. Spray the top of the soap with the alcohol to remove air bubbles.
  7. Let the soap cool for 90 minutes. Then remove from the silicone mold, and enjoy!


Soap should be stored in an airtight container.
