Tips and Suggestions

  • Easiest if you have a couple parents helping in two or three groups or one group and have someone entertaining the children with a game, story or activity.
  • Have several molds so you can do it all at one time rather than waiting for a set of soap to harden to reuse mold.
  • Always read the directions completely.
