Christmas Snowglobe Soaps

This is actually a project my son and I did last year. It was so much fun to create these!

You will need:
  1. Ice cube trays
  2. Glycerin soap clear and white
  3. Little (and I mean little) toys for the center. I used mini Christmas buttons...make sure whatever you choose doesn't have really sharp edges.
  4. Soap scent (I did peppermint)
  5. Soap color dyes
  6. Bags for packaging
First you want to break up your clear glycerin soap block. Put soap in a pot and melt over medium heat, stirring constantly. Once melted, add your coloring and soap scent. Pour melted soap into your ice cube trays about 3/4 full. Gently push your center decorations into the soap, upside down. * I should add that before you melt your clear soap, you will want to grate your white soap (my son used a spoon) and set aside.* Once you add your center deco, sprinkle the white soap on top of the  clear soap. carefully pop the ice cube trays in the freezer to set. After they set, pop out of the tray and your done. We wrapped ours in cello bags to give away as gifts.

 I had intended to smooth out the bottom of my soap once they set but we decided we  liked the rough edges because it looked more, snow-like.

You can put a dot of the clear tinted soap in the bottom of your mold and press the tip of your toy into it to anchor it before you fill it the rest of the way. That way they won't go floating around in the "globe"
