Working on filling up your kid’s baskets for Easter? Here’s a wonderful recipe for colorful, fruity whipped soaps that will turn any bath time into play time! They’re easy to do and are sure to be a great addition to all of the chocolate and candy on Easter morning!
- 4 Cups Foaming Bath Butter
- Fragrance Oils
- Mica Powder or Liquid Soap Colors
- Clear Cone Cello Bags (found at any craft store)
- Raffia Ribbon
- Gift Tags
For my whipped soaps I’ll be dividing the recipe into three batches, so I’m using a different fragrance and color for each batch. These fragrances are perfect for kids and smell so delicious!
Start by whipping the foaming bath butter until light and fluffy. This is best achieved with an electric mixer. The bath butter will be very firm prior to whipping, but the texture quickly becomes fluffy like frosting.
Divide the mixture into three bowls.
To the first bowl of soap, blend in the color with the electric mixer. You can make yours a soft pastel color by using a small amount of soap coloring, or you can use more for a vibrant shade.
Next, mix in 1 teaspoon of fragrance oil and whip using the blender.
Scoop the mixture into the cone cello bags leaving space at the top and tie tightly with raffia ribbon.
Repeat the steps for the remaining two bowl of soap. For the mixture using Blue Slushy fragrance oil, I colored the soap a bright blue. You can use any color and fragrance combination you’d like- get creative!
A tip for filling each bag evenly without a mess is to fold the bag over your hand (just like you’re filling a frosting bag!). Fill the very bottom first and continue to move the bag up filling a little as you go until you reach the top.
For my last bowl of soap, I used Grape Soda fragrance oil and colored it purple. Kids will love it!
And if you feel extra crafty, you can even add a little glitter to your mixture for a special touch!
Finish each soap with a festive tag and fill your Easter baskets with some bath time fun!
Use in place of bar soap, body wash and even shaving cream. Let the kids paint themselves (and the tub, it wipes right off) with colorful, fruity soaps for extra fun in the bath!
